A senior Afghan government official has said that Kabul is open to peace talks with the Haqqani network under the right conditions.

Pakistan is genuine about backing the nascent Afghan peace process and shares the Kabul government’s goal of transforming the Taliban insurgency into a political movement, Reuters quoted the senior Afghan official as saying.

“This is the vision that they share,” said the official, who is closely involved in reconciliation efforts. He also said recent face-to-face talks between the Taliban and Afghan officials in Paris were “enormously helpful” for peace efforts. (DawnNews)
