Afghan peace envoy to pay 3-day visit to Pakistan on Nov. 12-14


08:57, November 12, 2012

ISLAMABAD, Nov. 11 (Xinhua) -- Afghan peace envoy will pay a three-day visit to Pakistan on Nov. 12-14 to discuss ways for Islamabad's role in the much-required reconciliation process in the war-shattered country, the Foreign Ministry said Sunday.

Salahuddin Rabbani, Chairman of High Peace Council of Afghanistan, will lead delegation in talks with government leaders and representatives of the Pakistani religious and political parties.

"A delegation of High Peace Council of Afghanistan, led by its Chairman Mr. Salahuddin Rabbani will visit Islamabad from Nov. 12 to 14 2012," a Foreign Ministry statement said.

Mr. Rabbani was invited by Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar to visit Pakistan to hold talks with the relevant authorities with regard to peace and reconciliation process in Afghanistan, it said.

During his visit Mr. Rabbani will call on the president and the prime minister, hold formal talks with foreign minister and meet the military leadership of the country, the statement said.

The visit had been planned earlier but it was postponed twice over what the officials' say of "incomplete agenda" for talks in the country.

Analysts attach importance to Rabbani's visit to Pakistan as they say Pakistan still has some influence on Afghan Taliban and can help pushing the peace process in Afghanistan.
