Pakistan military’s spy wing participated in a regional consultation event on the extremely slow Afghan peace process.

Pakistani chief of the army staff Qamar Bajwa and Lt. Gen Faiz Hameed Director General of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) have attended a session in Bahrain, Pakistan’s Inter-Services Public Relations reported on Wednesday.

“Current developments in the Afghan peace process, border security, and necessary steps to facilitate an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process were discussed,” ISPR reported.

The meeting was reportedly part of US-led international efforts to speed up the Afghan peace process with the key regional players.

Bahrain’s National Guard Commander Field Marshal Mohammed Bin Isa Al Khalifa and National Security Adviser Maj Gen Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa also met with Bajwa.

Both parties discussed security issues and common national interests.

This comes at a time when UN efforts are ongoing to establish a summit in Turkey in the matter of the Afghan peace process, the summit will also host special envoys from India, Russia, Pakistan, China, and Iran.
