Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan said Friday that peace in Afghanistan is “around the corner,” citing ongoing negotiations between the United States and the Taliban delegations.
“Negotiations have been initiated with the Taliban. God willing, our brothers in Afghanistan would live together in peace in coming days,” Khan told a big public gathering in northwestern Bajaur tribal district on the Afghan border.

Without elaborating further, Khan asserted the peace process would result in stability, trade and economic prosperity for the region.
“A good government will be established in Afghanistan, a government where all Afghans will be represented. The war will end and peace will be established there,” Imran Khan added. VOA reported.

The remarks come as the Afghan government has recently expressed concerns over negotiations between US and Taliban in Doha.
