Afghan Taliban to hold conference in Qatar

Kabul, Jan.23 (ANI): The Afghan Taliban will send representatives to a conference organised by the International Crisis Group at Doha that will discuss resolving the war in Afghanistan.

Representatives of the Taliban’s ‘political office’ will attend the conference being held in Doha on Saturday by Pugwash conferences on Science and World Affairs, reports the Dawn.

The conference ‘aimed at finding a solution to the conflict in Afghanistan,’is now in its 15th year.

The Taliban said they sought to take ‘healthy advantage’ of the Pugwash initiative to ‘relay the legal demands of our nation and our just policy to the world directly’.

The conference is not the part of official peace process which recently restarted after being derailed in July after theTaliban’s founder Mullah Mohammad Omar had been dead since early 2013.(ANI)
