Representatives of China, Russia, and the US held their 3rd consultation on the Afghan peace process in Beijing on July 10-11 following which they also requested Pakistan to join for a surprise quadrilateral meeting.
The dialogue in Qatar, which continues Monday, is the first in which Afghan government officials have participated and aims to break the ice for direct negotiations on Afghanistan’s political future after an expected US military withdrawal.
The agreements are also expected to provide guarantees that Afghanistan will not again harbour terrorists to carry out attacks worldwide. The talks began on Saturday and are expected to continue into the next week.
The latest round of talks comes amid heightened expectations that followed Pompeo's optimistic time frame for a pact to end Afghanistan's nearly 18-year war and America's longest-running military engagement.
The Afghan military’s routing of the Taliban two weeks ago from Khwaja Umari, a district about 10 miles from Ghazni City, capped a rare period of relatively good news for a military demoralized by years of high casualties and territorial loss.
New Delhi, Feb 25 (ANI): Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Vikas Swarup onThursday said that India will yet again move the United Nations to include the name of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Maulana Masood Azhar on the sanctions list to ban him. Swarup said "We will be moving to 1267 Sanctions Committee to also include the name of Masood Azhar on the sanctions list.
