Afghan peace talks should be held in Kabul: FM Hina

13 December, 2012

PARIS: Peace talks between the Taliban and Afghan authorities should be held in Kabul and not on foreign soil, Pakistan's foreign minister said on Wednesday, just days ahead of a meeting in Paris on Afghanistan's future.

Hina Rabbani Khar also told France's Le Monde daily that Islamabad did not wish to control the Afghan peace process. "It's up to the Afghans to choose which method they think is good," she said. "If they want to go to Washington, they can.

"But we think that the best solution is to hold the talks on Afghan soil, in Kabul," she said in remarks translated in French.

"The talks and negotiations cannot be held in Paris or in Berlin." "The national reconciliation between the Taliban and the government, as well as the capability of the Afghan forces to control their territory, are two key points," she said.

"Otherwise, the hypothesis of civil war is not ruled out."
