Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi is geared-up to host Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Afghan Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani while the US and Afghan Taliban are ‘reportedly’ days away from signing the final settlement plans.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani is reportedly extremely anxious over the deal between the Taliban and the US and is, therefore, travelling to the US for a meeting with President Donald Trump on Monday. There are reports that even US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has refused to sign the deal, calling it “surrender” to the Taliban.

Who is Remote-Controlling the Afghan Taliban – Qatar, Saudi or Pakistan?

Zalmay Khalilzad, the US envoy leading efforts to forge a deal with the Taliban, has spent about a year meeting with the Taliban in Doha in a series of talks aimed at ending America’s 18-year-old war in Afghanistan.

The deal which is closer to being clinched centres on a US troop withdrawal in return for several security guarantees from the Taliban, broader peace talks between the insurgents and the Afghan government, and an eventual ceasefire.
