ISLAMABAD - Pakistan pledged on Saturday to help Afghanistan end a 10-year Taliban insurgency, as their mutual ally the United States prepares to start a gradual troop withdrawal.

Pakistan has historically maintained close contacts with the Afghan Taliban and is seen as an important player that can push insurgent groups to the negotiating table.

"Our aim is to support the peace process which is Afghan-led and it is (an) Afghan process for reconciliation," Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani told a joint news conference with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

"Pakistan is ready to support whatever support they want ... it is in the interest of Pakistan to have a stable, peaceful, prosperous, independent and sovereign Afghanistan."
