Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani made a telephone call to Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday, according to a statement issued by the Foreign Office (FO). Imran and Ghani agreed to realise the true economic potential of the two countries for assured socio-economic development, alleviation of poverty, and welfare of the two peoples.
Kabul police spokesman Ferdaws Faramurz confirmed the attack, which has not been claimed by any group. The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan condemned the killings.
Donald Trump’s decision to call off negotiations and a covert face-to-face meeting with the Taliban demonstrated, once again, that he is a loose cannon on the international scene.
Imran Khan says he has "initiated a dialogue" with the Taliban to prod them to form an inclusive government that would ensure peace and stability not only in Afghanistan but also in the region.
A video posted by the group's spokesman Suhail Shaheen showed dozens of schoolgirls in black, some wearing white head scarves and others with black face veils, sat in chairs waving Taliban flags.
The busy border crossing had closed on Wednesday after Pakistani and Afghan Taliban forces started firing at each other, according to local officials.
