Pakistani mainstream media have cited Pakistani officials that a special invitation has been extended to Afghanistan’s acting foreign minister Amir Khan Motaqi to attend Troika Plus.

Spokesperson of Afghanistan’s foreign ministry Abdul Qahar Balkhi in a Tweeter post said that a high-level delegation led by Amir Khan Motaqi will travel to Pakistan on November 10 to attend Troika plus.

The Troika plus is intended to be held on November 11 in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

Amir Khan Motaqi will reportedly be extending his visit by a day as he will conduct negotiations with the Pakistani officials on bilateral issues but Kabul has not commented on the visit yet.

Troika plus is a forum established by Pakistan, the US, China, and Russia who are the most impactful countries in restoring peace and stability in Afghanistan.

The summit will be attended by Pakistan’s special representative to Afghanistan Sadiq Khan, US’s special representative to Afghanistan Thomas West, China’s special representative to Afghanistan Yue Xiaoyong, and Russia’s special representative to the country Zamir Kabulov.

Amir Khan Moraqi’s visit to Pakistan is said to be a step forward for recognition and legitimacy for the interim government in Afghanistan.
