Last week, the foreign ministers of Afghanistan, Turkey, and Pakistan held a meeting in Istanbul in an effort to revive the Afghan peace process days after the Istanbul conference was postponed reportedly due to the Taliban’s refusal to attend it. The three counterparts, in a joint statement, called for an immediate ceasefire and restart of talks.
Pakistan is the only country that has influence over Taliban leadership.
Details of the meeting have yet to come.
