Pakistani Foreign Affairs Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said they had serious negotiations with the Afghan president Hamid Karzai and a number of the other high level Afghan government officials who accompanied him during his visit to Islamabad.
Afghan government officials ahead of the president Karzai’s visit to Islamabad said he is due to put pressure on the Pakistani officials to pave the way for meeting the Taliban leaders at Taliban Council based in Quetta city of Pakistan.
However Pakistani deny providing sanctuaries to Taliban militants in Pakistani soil and also denied the allegations regarding the Taliban leaders and the Taliban’s Quetta Council based in this city.
Pakistani Foreign Affairs Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said, we are prepared and welcome to assess any suggestions but it would be impossible for us to put ourselves in the same stance if the suggestions are unreasonable and ridiculous.
She said on Friday Mullah Mohammad Omar, the supreme commander of the Afghan Taliban, was not in Pakistan and it was “preposterous” to think that Islamabad could ensure his participation in peace talks with the Afghan government.
Meanwhile Pakistani Foreign Affairs Minister Hina Rabbani Khar during her recent visit to capital Kabul said, certain misunderstandings between Kabul and Islamabad have been resolved.
She also said, Pakistan remains committed to cooperate with the Afghan government to encourage the Taliban group to sit in for peace talks.
However the recent comments by Afghan president Hamid Karzai regarding the Kabul and Islamabad relations seems to be doubtful and cautious.
An Afghan government official quoted by Reuters News Agency said, Afghan president Hamid Karzai had taken a serious stance while expressing his concerns to Pakistani officials.
President Hamid Karzai following his meeting with the Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari urged to create a policy that should be implemented in actions.
