UNAMA Welcomes Govt's Offer To The Taliban”

He said Pakistan, together with China, Iran, Russia and Turkey, is making efforts to promote a regional solution to the Afghan conflict and Ghani's offer to the Taliban is in line with those efforts. We have been emphasising in these columns that Taliban can not be eliminated or ignored in any peace process or institutional mechanism to run the country. However, the dialogue was suspended after the announcement of the death, in 2013, of the spiritual guide of the insurgent group, Mullah Mohammad Omar, and the election of his successor, Mullah Akhtar Mohamed Mansur.

State Department Spokesperson Heater Nauert congratulated the government of Afghanistan on the success of the just-concluded Kabul Peace Process meeting during which Afghan President Ashraf Ghani unveiled a plan to open peace talks with the Taliban.

"The Afghan government must be accepting and we will also work on the list of freeing Taliban prisoners", he said.

She noted that delegations from Afghanistan, India, and the United States met in the Afghan capital on Tuesday on the margins of the Kabul Process Conference for the fourth round of US-India-Afghanistan trilateral consultations.

Gokhale conveyed that "India welcomed the Afghan government's call to armed groups to cease violence and join national peace and reconciliation process that would protect the rights of all Afghans, including the women, children and the minorities" in a "inclusive, democratic and pluralistic nation free from the shadow of terrorism".

Trump has also raised pressure on Pakistan - the neighboring country that Afghanistan accuses of sheltering and supporting the Taliban - by withholding hundreds of millions of dollars in US security assistance.

The Afghan Taliban are a political entity and Pakistan supports the dialogue between the Afghan government and the Taliban, foreign minister Khawaja Asif told journalists here.

Abdali said: "We want an end to their sanctuaries".

The United States, United Nations, and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation had representatives at the conference who expressed support for a negotiated conclusion to the long war in Afghanistan, although President Donald Trump has been cool to the idea of negotiating with the Taliban.
