“Pakistan-Taliban Landmark Peace Talks Start”

#AceWorldNews says delegates from both the Pakistani government and the Taliban met for over three hours on Thursday in the first round of peace talks targeted at putting an end to the militant group’s insurgent activities. The meeting took place in Islamabad after Tuesday’s talks failed to take place after the Pakistani government expressed doubts about the Taliban negotiators.

During the successfully rescheduled meeting on Thursday, the two groups charted a ‘roadmap’ for future discussions, with Irfan Siddiqui, the government’s chief negotiator saying the Taliban had “responded to us beyond our expectations,” according to AFP.
