Talks on Afghan peace likely this month


ISLAMABAD: Representatives of Pakistan, Afghanistan, the United States and China are expected to convene later this month to re-examine the blueprint for starting Afghan reconciliation dialogue after their initial plan for talks failed last month because of the Taliban’s refusal to join the process.

A meeting of the Quadrilateral Coordination Group (QCG) is expected to meet later this month, Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said at a panel discussion organised by the Jinnah Institute and titled “From Winter to Spring: Revisiting the Afghan Question”.
