Officials from Afghanistan and Pakistan are conducting "secret talks" reportedly mediated by the United Arab Emirates. Officials from the two countries conferred in the Afghan capital, Kabul, for a second consecutive day on Tuesday, Al Jazeera reported. Issues high on the agenda were said to include, finding solutions for problems that have plagued the two countries and the ongoing issue regarding the Taliban. No other specific details have been forthcoming, as the talks are being held behind closed doors. The talks are intended to be a follow-up to discussions that were held in Abu Dhabi earlier in the year. There has been no reaction from the Taliban so far with regards to the current discussions being held in Kabul. The Afghan delegation currently attending the talks reportedly includes Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef, former Taliban ambassador to Pakistan, Hekmat Karzai, the Director of the Centre for Conflict and Peace Studies, and Ali Ahmad Jalali, the former Afghan interior minister. Aftab Ahmad Sherpao, the former Pakistani interior minister and Asif Durrani, the former chief of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence are two of the main Pakistani officials attending the talks. The international community and the Afghan government have reportedly asked for the decisions made in Abu Dhabi to be respected and that peace efforts should be emphasized upon as the current military strategy is deemed to have destabilized the region.
