ISLAMABAD: US top envoy Zalmay Khalilzad reveals the benefits of US and Afghan Taliban peace deal for Pakistan.

US special representative for Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad said on Monday that a future US Taliban agreement will lead to fortification of Pak-Afghan trade ties as well, ushering in a new phase..

Last week, Afghan Taliban said their top leadership in Doha held an important meeting with Zalmay Khalilzad in the presence of the foreign minister of Qatar.

The US envoy was addressing the international conference titled "40 years of Afghan Refugees Presence in Pakistan: A New Partnership for Solidarity" in Islamabad.

During his address, Khalilzad said the solution to the Afghan peace process is quite a difficult one.

“Making warring factions sit together is a big challenge,” said the US envoy, adding that a US-Taliban agreement will pave way for plausible peace in the country.

Zalmay Khalilzad said the neighbouring countries of Afghanistan played a major role in the Afghan peace process.
