Indian leading newspaper "The Times of India" says Pakistan has used the opportunity of Afghan Peace Process to manoeuvre itself to center stage of the region's geopolitics.
The Newspaper in an article said Pakistan joined the US, Russia and China to craft a peace agreement with the Taliban.
It said Pakistan is playing a crucial role in bringing the Taliban to the table.
The daily said India's participation or voice has been negligible in the evolving situation in the region.
It said India is nowhere in the peace negotiations, nor have India's concerns really found any traction.
Times of India said Pakistan has also proved its indispensability referring to the scheduled meeting between US President Trump and Prime Minister Imran Khan in Washington next week.
