Negotiations between the government of Pakistan and the Tehreek-e-Taliban ended in Kabul without any results
News sources say that the recent round of talks between the Pakistani delegation and the Taliban in Kabul ended without any noticeable progress.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Monitoring: Mohammad Ali Saif; Advisor to the Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa state told Radio Azadi on Monday, without giving further details, that the negotiations were held in a very good atmosphere and the parties shared their ideas and suggestions.
He added that this conversation was supposed to cover the whole day, but it continued for three days, and the request of the Pakistani Taliban to cancel the annexation of the tribal areas to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa state was one of the most important issues discussed.
"The most important issue that was discussed a lot was their (Pakistani Taliban) demand regarding the status of FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Areas) that they say that the annexation of this area should be withdrawn and our views on this matter, we share it with them. We discussed."
Mr. Saif added that the issue of the return of the Pakistani Taliban to the country, political, social and economic issues related to it were also discussed. A number of tribal leaders also participated in this round of talks.
Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) was annexed to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa state four years ago by the decision of the Pakistani Parliament.
This is the second Pakistani delegation that had traveled to Kabul in a week for talks with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Taliban.
Another Pakistani delegation, consisting of religious scholars, returned to Pakistan from Kabul on Saturday.
Although these negotiations are being mediated by the Islamic Emirate, they shared very little information about this with the media.
