Observer Report

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi will visit Turkey on Friday where he will be joined by his Afghan and Turkish counterparts in a trilateral meeting on the peace process in Afghanistan, the Foreign Office said on Thursday.

The foreign ministers will hold talks in Istanbul on Friday, Turkey said, after a wider Afghan peace conference was postponed because the Taliban said they would not participate.

The planned peace talks in Turkey were scheduled for April 24 to fast-track an agreement between the Taliban and Afghan government in light of the announcement by Washington that foreign troops would leave Afghanistan by Sep 11. No new date has been set for those talks.
