ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan has revealed that Pakistan has helped background contacts between US and Afghan Taliban .

PM Khan said on Friday that Pakistan brought the Afghan Taliban to table for talks with the US.

The prime minister was addressing a ceremony held at the province's Nishtar Hall to mark 100 days of the PTI government.

“The country which mocked Pakistan for its approach, asked us for help to bring Afghan Taliban to table for the peace process,” lamented Imran.

“I was called ‘Taliban Khan’ when I said that we can’t solve the issue without dialogue,” he remarked.

The prime minister said that no political party was re-elected in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after its initial tenure, but PTI broke this norm in General Election 2018.
