Taliban minister Muttaqi in Islamabad


Islamabad: A delegation led by Taliban’s acting foreign minister Amir Khan Muttaqi reached Islamabad on Wednesday to hold talks with the Pakistani leadership.

This is the fist visit of Afghan officials to Pakistan since the Sunni Pashtun group swept to power in Kabul.

The Pakistan foreign ministry said that during the three-day visit, the focus will be on bilateral ties, with discussions to be held on enhancing trade, cross-border movement, land and aviation links, people-to-people contacts and regional connectivity. Muttaqi will also hold talks with Pakistani counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi.

The visit is taking place as a follow-up to Qureshi’s visit to Kabul on October 21.
