Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi is set to host Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Afghan Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani amid reports of imminent peace accord between the US and Afghan Taliban after months of negotiations.
According to a statement issued by Foreign Office, the agenda of the dialogue is focused on political relations and the peace process, security cooperation and counter terrorism, and development cooperation and connectivity. Foreign Minister of China Wang Yi and Foreign Minister of Afghanistan Salahuddin Rabbani will lead their respective delegations.
The Kabul administration; however, is apparently upset over the likely Taliban-US deal and because President Ghani is travelling to the US for a meeting with President Donald Trump on Monday.
Earlier, American special envoy for Afghanistan and chief negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad has said in different interviews by Afghan news outlets that the deal with Afghan Taliban has almost been done. He has also for the first time shared the proposed deal with Afghan president Ashraf Ghani and chief executive Dr. Abdullah Abdullah. The Afghan government is not part of these negotiations taking place in Doha for last one year. The Afghan and western media has provided some points of this agreement. Both sides expected to formally sign this agreement very soon.
