US should show restraint on drone strikes during Afghan-Taliban peace talks: Khawaja Asif

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif has said that the United States should try and limit drone strikes when endeavors to resuscitate Afghan-Taliban peace exchange are in progress.

Talking on a local TV syndicated program, the minster expressed the trust that the four-country unsettled to restore peace converses with Taliban, as of now in progress in Muscat, would yield positive outcomes. Be that as it may, the US should endeavor to confine ramble assaults amid this era for the discussions to be successful. Pakistan needs relations with the US in light of equity, Asif emphasized.

Afghanistan, China, Pakistan, and the United States met in Oman on Monday to attempt and restore the Afghan-Taliban peace settlement. The four-country Quadrilateral Coordination Group (QGC) met in Islamabad a year ago too, mainly to resuscitate peace discourse between the Afghan government and the Taliban.

In any case, it was not clear if any Afghan Taliban had joined the dialogue, which has so far neglected to restore the procedure that was stopped in 2015.
