Pakistan’s international minister says “progress has been made” at ongoing peace talks in Qatar between the Taliban and the U.S. which have stretched over two weeks.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi spoke on Tuesday at a information convention with German International Minister Heiko Maas in Islamabad.
Qureshi did not elaborate, although he added: “Pakistan has inspired all factions inside Afghanistan to take a seat collectively and have a significant intra-Afghan dialogue.”
The talks between U.S. envoy Zalmay Khalilzad and Taliban representatives have gone on days longer than initially anticipated in Doha, the Qatari capital.
The U.S. had requested Pakistan to help in its efforts to discover a negotiated peace with the Taliban to finish the longest conflict in American historical past.
The Taliban refuse to barter with Kabul, which is not collaborating within the Qatar talks.
