At the United Nation, Pakistan called for a diplomatic surge in Afghanistan while reminding the world body that Prime Minister Imran Khan had long urged a political settlement to end the war.
Mr Khan said peace in Afghanistan was in Pakistan's interest and vowed to put pressure on the Afghan Taliban but said it was "easier said than done" with "about 40% of Afghanistan now out of the government's hands".
"We need peace in Afghanistan but Pakistan will not fight others' war (in the neighbouring country)", the prime minister told the students at his office on Friday.
"Thanks (God) that today, the same people who were asking to do more are now asking us to help them in Afghanistan, to establish peace and to negotiate", he said.

"The ruling party (in India) has an anti-Muslim, anti-Pakistan approach", said Khan in an interview to the Washington Post on Thursday when asked why his gestures to India were dismissed since he took power earlier this year. "And yet Pakistan was asked to participate in the U.S. war", he said. "Already, we have investors coming into Pakistan", he said.
"Apart from Afghanistan it is Pakistan", Ambassador Lodhi said, "that has endured the greatest suffering and damage from the strife, violence and instability in Afghanistan".
Mr Khan's statements followed Thursday's announcement that Pakistan was expelling 18 global charities - a move that comes amid growing paranoia that Western aid agencies are being used as a front for espionage.
PM Khan also denied that there were any sanctuaries for Taliban leaders in Pakistan. "We want a similar relationship with the United States".
"We have 2.7 million Afghan refugees. The exchange was about being blamed for deeply flawed U.S. policies - the military approach to Afghanistan".
"We believe that the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is the guiding document for this society until such time as this society through its relevant representatives would decide to make changes", he said.
Under Trump, U.S. officials have intensified efforts to bring the Taliban to the peace negotiation table. If you don't stand by what the Supreme Court says, then there's no state left.
