Ghani to consider revival of talks with Taliban

Islamabad, Sep 6 (IANS) Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani will consider Pakistan’s proposal for reviving the stalled peace talks with the Taliban.

“Ghani will discuss our proposal with his allies,” Dawn online quoted a senior Pakistani official as saying.

Sartaj Aziz, the national security advisor to the Pakistan prime minister, talked about resuming the reconciliation process during a visit to Kabul on Friday.

The dialogue with the Taliban was suspended on the eve of the July 31 following the disclosure of Taliban leader Mullah Omar’s death.

The Afghan president promised to respond to Aziz’s proposals after consulting his advisers.

Afghanistan alleges that there was evidence that the leadership, command and control centre of the Haqqani network and other terrorist outfits were inside Pakistani territory.

Hours after meeting Aziz, Ghani spoke of “elements in Pakistan that wanted to keep his country (Afghanistan) weak”.
