Kabul urges Pakistan to target Afghan Taliban


ISLAMABAD: Following Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s remarks that Pakistan could not bring Taliban to the negotiating table “and be asked to kill them at the same time,” the government in Kabul has urged Islamabad to take action against Afghan Taliban.

In a joint-statement after a meeting between the premier and US President Barack Obama, both the leaders had called on the Taliban to “enter into direct talks with Kabul and work towards a sustainable peace settlement.”
