Kabul, Taliban Likely To Restart Peace Talks: Indian Media

Diplomatic efforts are under way amidst strong indications of an imminent start to peace negotiations between Kabul and the Afghan Taliban, The Express Tribune has learned.

Acting U.S Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Laura Miller has arrived in Islamabad and diplomatic sources are linking her visit to the move.

Miller reportedly met Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan Omar Zakhilwal and “discussed various issues,” the ambassador said on his official Twitter account.

The US Ambassador in Islamabad David Hale and Military Deputy to the Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Major General Judd H Lyons were also present in the meeting.

The US delegation arrived in Islamabad days after they met Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in Kabul and discussed the situation in the region, Afghanistan and Pakistan ties and Miller’s work in this regard, Ghani’s office said.

The US envoy is visiting Pakistan at a time when a senior Taliban representative in Qatar political office told The Express Tribune in a recent interview that the Taliban leaders are “involved in internal discussions” to chalk out a strategy for possible political negotiations.

The diplomatic efforts have been intensified weeks after the Taliban political representatives wrapped up a visit to Pakistan in October. Pakistan and Taliban had confirmed the visit but avoided giving any details.
