Pakistan to pressure Taliban into peace talks: CEO

Pakistan to pressure Taliban into peace talks: CEO

Sep 13, 2018 - 11:18

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Chief Executive Officer Dr. Abdullah hopes the new Pakistani government would pressure the Talibaninfo-icon to enter peace talks with Kabul.

In an interview published on Thursday, the CEO believed Pakistaninfo-icon could exercise its influence in bringing the Taliban to the negotiating table.

“It is a new government and Prime Minister Imran Khan has promised stability. The region might miss out on further opportunities if security challenges are not addressed,” he said.

Speaking to The Indian Express, Abdullah said he was hopeful of the new Pakistani government pushing the Taliban into reconciliation with the Ashraf Ghani administration.

Abdullah was in Mumbai on Wednesday to open the second India-Afghanistaninfo-icon International Trade and Investment Show, sponsored by the USAIDinfo-icon.

US sanctions against Iran would not affect progress of the Chabahar Port, he said. “We cannot influence the broader context of relationships among different countries.

“At the same time, as far as we are concerned, we are in a situation where we need co-operation from all neighbouring countries, especially all the countries of the region.”
