Islamabad—Afghanistan has confirmed its participation in the Islamabad quartet meeting to review the situation in the wake of Taliban refusal to join peace talks.
Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan Dr Omar Zakhilwal told media that he would represent his country in the latest round of the Quadrilateral Coordination Group of Afghanistan, China, Pakistan and the United States on Wednesday.
Dr Zakhilwal, who is also Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s special representative for Pakistan, has returned from Kabul after holding important discussions ahead of the 5th QCG round.
The impending meeting is considered important as Kabul is now pushing for the military option against Afghan Taliban – who have rejected the offer to join peace talks.
The ambassador in his recent comments said Kabul wants the QCG declare the Taliban as “irreconcilable” as it had been specified in the roadmap.
