Pakistan-Afghanistan talks ‘end in acrimony’ | Al Jazeera

After two days of high-level talks with Iran and Pakistan, Afghanistan has failed to gain Pakistani support for its bid to advance its peace process with Taliban fighters.

Pakistan’s foreign minister told Afghanistan on Friday against having “ridiculous” expectations of what Pakistan could do to help Taliban peace negotiations, as talks between the two countries on the process ended in apparent acrimony.

The minister, Hina Rabbani Khar, said it was “preposterous” to think that Pakistan could deliver Taliban chief Mullah Omar to the negotiating table as Afghanistan has asked in the past, despite the Pakistani government’s alleged ties to the group.
