Military Times: After years of tension between Washington and Islamabad, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan insisted Tuesday the two are now on the same page and said he will do his best to persuade the Taliban to open negotiations with the Afghan government to resolve the war.
The U.S. has been engaging with the Taliban, but so far they have refused to talk directly to the Afghan government, which it sees as a puppet. Afghans are wary of Pakistan’s involvement in crafting a future for their country, but Khan said the Taliban need to participate in the next Afghan presidential election in September.
