Abdullah due in Islamabad today for key talks

Sep 28, 2020 - 08:40

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon will roll out the red carpet as Afghanistaninfo-icon’s High Council for National Reconciliation (HCNR) Dr Abdullah arrives in Islamabad on a three-day visit today (Monday).

Dr Abdullah would be accompanied by a high-level delegation comprising prominent members of the High Council for National Reconciliation, the Foreign Office in Islamabad said.

Kabulinfo-icon’s chief peace negotiator will meet Prime Minister Imran Khan, President Dr Arif Alvi, Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani, National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and others.

Besides interacting with media representatives during his visit, Abdullah is also scheduled to speak at the Institute of Strategic Studies in Islamabad.

He is expected to have a wide-ranging exchange of views with Pakistani officials on the Afghan peace process and strengthening of Pakistan-Afghanistan bilateral relations.

Speaker Asad Qaiser hailed Abdullah’s visit as a milestone in cementing bilateral relations. He said Pakistan fully supported an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace initiative.

On August 26, the Pakistani prime minister had extended an invitation to Abdullah during a telephonic conversation.

“The two sides will discuss ways of promoting peace and security in Afghanistan and the region at large. They will also confer on how to remove bilateral mistrust,” a Pakistani diplomat told Pajhwok Afghan News.

In an attempt to win support for the Afghan peace process, Abdullah is likely to urge leaders of Pakistan’s religious parties to help resolve differences between Kabul and Talibaninfo-icon negotiating teams.

Long-awaited intra-Afghan talks in Doha on ending two decades of conflict have been stymied by a mismatch of perception on certain issues rules for the dialogue and the Taliban-US peace pact of February 29.
