Kabul willing to revive moribund quartet for peace
The administration of President Ashraf Ghani has expressed its willingness to resuscitate a moribund quartet which was formed to work out a negotiated end to the spiral of deadly violence in Afghanistan.
The Quadrilateral Coordination Group (QCG), which is made up of Pakistan, Afghanistan, China and the United States, has been dormant since Afghan Taliban supremo Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was killed in a US drone strike in May 2016.
“However, now Kabul has indicated that it is willing to revive the quadrilateral for revival of peace talks,” a source told Daily Express. Friday’s statement of President Ghani further shows willingness on the part of Kabul to re-engage with Islamabad.
