Dubai, Apr 6(ANI): Afghanistan Foreign Minister Zalmay Rasool has said his country won't be used as a launch pad for conducting US drones attacks on Pakistan after NATO combat forces withdraw at the end of 2014.
"Afghan soil will not be used against any country in the region," the Express Tribune quoted Rasool, as saying.
"The presence of the remaining forces in Afghanistan is for training, equipping and securing Afghanistan's security. It has been mentioned, it is going to be mentioned, that this force is not for use against any neighbours in the region," he added.
Rasool was in Qatar for talks over the opening of Taliban office in Doha.
