(DAWN): At a Webinar in Washington this week, US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation also said that the Pakistani leadership “has been sending the right messages” for the success of Afghan peace talks. “We have offered to meet with Iranians on this issue,” said Mr Khalilzad while responding to a question about Iran’s role in the Afghan peace process. “That they should join various fora, where we are and they are too, to discuss the future of Afghanistan.” But the envoy, who leads US efforts for peacefully ending the Afghan war, also acknowledged that “Iran is a bit of a challenge”.
