Pakistan to host second round of Kabul-Taliban talks
July 28, Islamabad: Pakistani officials have said that it has been working to finalize preparations to host the second round of landmark peace talks between Afghan government officials and the Taliban later this week.
The talks are meant to find a way to end the 14-year war in Afghanistan, which has been a priority for Afghan President Ashraf Ghani since he took office last year.
Islamabad hosted the first round of the official, face-to-face discussions earlier this month. The meeting was supervised by U.S. and Chinese representatives and ended with both sides agreeing to meet again.
Islamabad is now finalizing preparations for the next round on Friday, The Associated Press reports.
