PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): The Afghan Talibaninfo-icon’s offer of holding direct negotiations with the United States is not justified, says a senior Pakistani political figure.

In an interview published on Sunday, Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) chairman Aftab Sherpao believed bringing the Taliban to the negotiating table was impossible.

In an interview with The News, the former interior minister observed that bringing Taliban to the negotiating table was impossible.

Speaking to The News, the ex-interior minister called for tangible steps to end the mistrust between Pakistaninfo-icon and Afghanistaninfo-icon.

Relations between the neighbours had nosedived, as weak civilian governments did not pay adequate attention to enhanced bilateral cooperation, he noted.

As long as Afghanistan remained unstable, economic prosperity and peace would elude the region, remarked the former chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
