Pakistan’s special representative, Asif Durrani, supports the appointment of a special envoy to Afghanistan at the Doha meeting, despite the Taliban’s opposition.

According to Express Tribune, Asif Durrani, Pakistan’s special representative, supports appointing a special envoy to Afghanistan at the Doha meeting, against the Taliban’s wishes.

A source said Pakistan does not consider itself obliged to defend the Taliban’s positions.

Express Tribune wrote that previously Pakistan had expressed concerns about the appointment of a UN special envoy, but now supports this proposal.

Islamabad has stated that the UN special envoy should be “Muslim, experienced diplomat, and regional expert.”

Pakistan’s shift in stance on the UN special envoy clashes with the Taliban’s stance against such appointments. Express Tribune reported, citing a Pakistani official, that Islamabad no longer supports Taliban demands in international forums. If confirmed, Durrani’s backing for the envoy appointment may stem from Pakistan’s discontent with the Afghan Taliban’s support for Pakistani militants behind attacks on its military.

The two-day Doha conference on Afghanistan, with the participation of the UN Secretary-General and special representatives from over 20 countries, has been launched to find a solution to Afghanistan’s critical situation and global interaction with the Taliban.
