“When I return to Pakistan, I will meet the Taliban leaders and work well to persuade them to talk to the Afghan government,” Khan said.

Speaking at the US Security Institute, a federal bipartisan body, Imran Khan said he had been contacted by the Taliban a few months ago after winning his country elections in July 2018, but had no chance of meeting because they did not accept Kabul’s consent.

“The Taliban contacted me as I repeatedly pointed out that the situation in Afghanistan could not be resolved militarily.

“On that basis, I seem to have credibility in their views,” Pakistani PM said.
