ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, while talking to the media here on Thursday, said that Pakistan wanted Taliban to listen what the international community had to say about its reservations. He was accompanied by Information Minister Fawad Chaudhary.
He stated that an important and a positive role was being played by Pakistan by bringing together the world leaders and Taliban at one platform thereby minimising the communication barrier between the two. He further added that meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) would serve as a turning point in addressing the looming humanitarian crisis next door in Afghanistan.
Qureshi told the media that the interim Afghan foreign minister will lead the Taliban at the moot, which will also be attended by world powers – the United States, China and Russia.
Australia, Canada, Germany and Japan will also participate in the moot.
Pakistan’s desperation to ward off the looming humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan also stems from the fact that terrorist organisations may get strengthened if the world powers did not come to the rescue of the normal Afghan citizens. Pakistan has had to bear the brunt of the US-Afghan War fallout and thus fears that things could go bad if the situation did not improve in Afghanistan.
