Pakistan welcomes US-Taliban talks resumption

Islamabad, Dec 6, IRNA -- Pakistan has welcomed the announcement regarding resumption of the US-Taliban talks, hoping the process would lead to intra-Afghan dialogue and ultimately to a peaceful and stable Afghanistan.

“Pakistan encourages all parties to the conflict to engage constructively as a shared responsibility,” said a statement issued by the Foreign Ministry, a day after the US announced that it was set to resume talks with the Taliban in Doha shortly.

Pakistan, the statement added, has always maintained that there is no military solution to the conflict in Afghanistan. “An inclusive peace and reconciliation process, involving all segments of the Afghan society, is the only practical way forward.”

“Pakistan encourages all parties to the conflict to engage constructively as a shared responsibility,” it said.

Pakistan’s reaction came just a day after the State Department announced that US chief negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad was traveling to Kabul and Doha this week.

Earlier Pakistan had said they are hopeful that despite the current deadlock, the Afghan peace process would resume soon.
