Taliban reconciliation not one-off exercise, says Fatemi


WASHINGTON: Afghanistan and Pakistan can take joint action against the Taliban groups who refuse to participate in the reconciliation process, says prime minister’s Special assistant for foreign Affairs Tariq Fatemi.

Briefing the Pakistani media at the end of a 10-day visit to Washington, Mr Fatemi hoped that the terrorist attack in Gurdaspur in Indian Punjab would not have any impact on efforts to improve bilateral ties with India as Pakistan had nothing to do with it.
