The Foreign Office (FO) issued a statement after the Taliban announced temporary ceasefire for days around Eid.
"Pakistan wishes to reiterate its support of recent peace initiatives in Afghanistan. We particularly support all Afghan-owned and Afghan-led efforts aimed at bringing peace and stability to Afghanistan," it said.
Meanwhile, the army said that it has nothing to do with the brief abduction of rights activist Gul Bukhari, 52, a dual Pakistan-British national, who was kidnapped by unknown men on Tuesday night in Lahore while she was going to participate in a TV show and released early Wednesday.
Nobody claimed the kidnapping and Bukhari did not accuse anyone after her release.
