Pakistani PM: Afghan Taliban ‘Should Become a Part of the Political Process’

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday suggested that the Taliban should play a role in Afghanistan’s political process after a peace agreement is reached, a move that could allow the narco-jihadi group to return to office in Kabul after U.S. forces removed its regime from power in late 2001 for harboring the 9/11 perpetrator al-Qaeda.
