Ghani to consider revival of talks with Taliban


ISLAMABAD: Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, despite his scepticism about Pakistan’s role and the Taliban’s sincerity in reconciliation, has agreed to consider Islamabad’s proposal for reviving the stalled peace dialogue with the militant group.

“Mr Ghani will discuss our proposal with his allies,” a senior Pakistani official told Dawn about the discussions the Adviser on Foreign Affairs and National Security, Sartaj Aziz, had with the Afghan president on Friday.
