Afghan leader urges action on peace with Taliban
Islamabad: The Afghan President says "impediments" in ties between Kabul and Islamabad must soon be removed so that progress can be made in peace talks to end the war in Afghanistan.
Hamid Karzai says the two countries need to resolve these problems "sooner rather than later." He did not elaborate.
Karzai spoke on Friday after talks with Pakistan`s civilian and military leaders aimed at trying to secure their cooperation in bringing Afghan Taliban leaders — who are believed to be in Pakistan — to the negotiating table.
The US is backing talks with the Taliban, but mistrust on all sides is hampering the process.
Karzai gave little indication of progress, saying all sides still need to formulate a policy and "actually act upon it”.
