Pakistan’s foreign ministry says one-day peace talks between Afghan officials and Taliban representatives ended with both sides agreeing to meet again after the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan.


In a statement released on Wednesday, the ministry said the talks were held Tuesday at Murree, a hill resort near Islamabad, Pakistan’s capital.

The ministry said during the talks it was “agreed that for lasting peace in the region, each side would approach the process in sincerity and with full commitment.”
