Islamabad: Adviser on Foreign Affairs and National Security Sartaj Aziz today said that Taliban, who are the supporters of peace talks have kept silence, whereas the opponents are giving statements.

While responding to question in the first ever meeting of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee at Parliament House, Sartaj Aziz said that due to the ongoing war in Afghanistan, it would be too early to say anything about peace dialogue.

He stated that the coming few weeks will be extremely significant for peace talks however; it is being tried to conduct such a dialogue in either Qatar or Istanbul. The adviser confirmed that negotiations are going on with the Afghan authorities, regarding the search and extradition of Taliban leader Mullah Fazlullah.

Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry also briefed the committee, about talks with India and said that no progress has yet been made in this regard, as India is ruling out the resumption of dialogue.
