    PESHAWAR: Sounding euphoric, Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Friday Pakistan had brokered peace talks between the Afghan Taliban and the US at the request of the latter. The prime minister said the talks are scheduled to be held on December 17.

    The prime minister, who was on a day-long visit to Peshawar, was speaking at a function on Friday arranged to present the assessment and evaluation of the 100-day agenda of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government. Giving his viewpoint about the future Peshawar in the context of peace efforts being carried out in Afghanistan, he said, “If Allah wills, Peshawar would change and it would become the hub of commerce and tourism, as things around this 2,500-year-old living city are likely to change.”

    Sounding very optimistic, the prime minister said Peshawar would change because the same America, which was always intimidating Pakistan to “do more”, is now asking it to facilitate its talks with the Taliban.

    “When I used to say that there is no other solution to this problem other than negotiations, I was described as the Taliban Khan, but they now ask us to help them in initiating talks with the Taliban,” Imran Khan said. “Now Pakistan has facilitated their talks with the Taliban, which are scheduled for December 17,” the premier said.

    Most probably Qatar. Most of Taliban leader released from Guantanamo bay were later repatriate in Qatar. Because Afghan govt refused to accept them.
    Taliban to TTP all pain .

    Who comes from Taliban Side and American side, does not matter in this situation when IK was able to organize everything in a matter of few days......my question/concern is what benefit Pakistan getting, atleast as participant. or just happy for being used and later blamed, and if India as a major partner now will be part of this exercise, then shame on whoever from Pakistan wants to boast and take credit of facilitating these talks.

    He like to address the nation for everything, why no details, and why no address before this major decision.

    Yes, Everything is unknown, May be in Pak. but what Pakistan negotiated and getting for doing this for them, no one else was able to achieve ...facilitating Talk and that also in just few days, like was just waiting for the letter to announce.or Pakistan is in so much in control of Afghan Talibans....meh aint know nah

    or fall in the trap happily.....why peace is / was not possible. so easy, letter came Pakistan ordered Taliban and meeting scheduled.

    Jald bazi hamesha marwati hai....
