Peace parleys likely to hold this month: Sartaj Aziz

Peace parleys likely to hold this month: Sartaj Aziz

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The foreign affairs advisor of Pakistaninfo-icon, Sartaj Aziz, on Thursday said that the next meeting of Quadrilateral Coordination Group (QCG) is expected to be held this month to re-examine the blueprint for starting Afghan reconciliation dialogue.

A meeting of Afghanistaninfo-icon, Pakistan, US and China is expected to meet later this month, Sartaj Aziz said at a panel discussion organised in Islamabad by the Jinnah Institute and titled “From Winter to Spring: Revisiting the Afghan Question”.

The initial plan of the Afghanistan, Pakistan, the United States and China meeting for peace talks had been failed last months because of the Talibaninfo-icon’s denial to join the peace process, so the QCG would meet to re-examine their plan.

He said QCG would have to collectively decide how to deal with elements refusing to join the peace process and Pakistan continues to play a consultative role in Afghan reconciliation process under the principle of shared responsibility.

“No one can dictate terms to either the Afghan government or the Afghan Taliban, nor can arbitrary timelines, deadlines or conditionalities be attached to the reconciliation process,” he said.
