Pak-Afghanistan joint commission to discuss Afghan war solution
Islamabad: Pakistan and Afghanistan are working to set into motion a joint commission for negotiations with the Taliban to end the war in Afghanistan.
Pakistan Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir arrived in Kabul on Monday to finalise the dates and venue for the opening session of the joint commission.
During his two-day visit, Bashir will call on Afghan President Hamid Karzai and convey Pakistan Prime Minister Gilani``s messsage on the issue.
Bashir is also scheduled to hold talks with the former Afghan President Burhanuddin Rabbani on the reconciliation process, the Pakistan``s Foreign Office told The Express Tribune.
An official, requesting anonymity, said the United States has agreed to be involved in the discussions for a political solution to the Afghan war on the condition of renouncing the terror group Al Qaeda.
Experts said the Taliban would be in a better position to disassociate from the Al Qaeda following the killing of its (Al Qaeda``s) former chief, Osama Bin Laden.
