“Talks are going on in Afghanistan,” he replied when asked if the Afghan Taliban were assisting in the peace effort. Yes, in that sense.”

Imran Khan, the prime minister, also stated that he does not believe in a military solution to any dispute.
“I reiterate that I am not a supporter of military solutions. As a politician, I’ve always believed that political discussion is the way to go,” he added.
