“Initiated Dialogue” With Taliban For Inclusive Afghan Government: Pakistan PM Imran Khan


'Initiated Dialogue' With Taliban For Inclusive Afghan Government: Pak PM

Imran Khan said that he has “initiated a dialogue” with the Taliban.

Islamabad:

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday said that he has “initiated a dialogue” with the Taliban for an inclusive government in Kabul that will include Tajiks, Hazaras and Uzbeks, a day after the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation member states said that it is critical to have an inclusive government in the war-torn country with representatives from all ethnic, religious and political groups.

The Taliban, which seized control of Afghanistan in mid-August, had promised an “inclusive” government that represents Afghanistan’s complex ethnic makeup, but there is no Hazara member and no woman in the interim 33-member Cabinet.

Taking to Twitter, Khan said: “After mtgs (meetings) in Dushanbe with leaders of Afghanistan’s neighbours & especially a lengthy discussion with Tajikistan’s President Emomali Rahmon, I have initiated a dialogue with the Taliban for an inclusive Afghan govt to include Tajiks, Hazaras & Uzbeks”.

After 40 years of conflict, this inclusivity will ensure peace and a stable Afghanistan, which is in the interest not only of Afghanistan but the region as well, he said in another tweet.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) leaders, in a joint declaration issued at the end of the annual Summit of the bloc in Tajikistan on Friday, voiced support for an independent, democratic and peaceful Afghanistan, free of terrorism, war and drugs.

“Member States believe that it is critical to have an inclusive Government in Afghanistan, with representatives from all ethnic, religious and political groups of Afghan society,” the joint declaration said, in an apparent reference to the Taliban’s interim government which is dominated by high-profile members of the insurgent group, including at least 14 members who are on the UN Security Council’s terrorism blacklist.
