The Islamic Emirate said that a delegation of Islamic Clerics of Pakistan led by Muhammad Taqi Usmani, a well-known Pakistani Islamic scholar, came to Kabul on Monday.
Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, stated that the 18-member delegation including the minister of borders and tribal affairs of Pakistan will discuss a range of issues with officials in Kabul.
“A delegation of the Islamic Clerics of Pakistan have come to Kabul, and it is clear that they will discuss a range of issues with the officials of the Islamic Emirate, it is still unclear which issues they will discuss and with whom they will meet,” Karimi said.
The Islamic Emirate's officials did not provide information about this trip, but some sources in Pakistan said that the delegation would discuss the talks between the Pakistani government and the Tahreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).
“The basic aim of the delegation is to solve the challenges which exist ahead of peace talks between the Pakistani Taliban and the presidential and security agencies of Pakistan,” said Tahir Khan, a journalist.
Meanwhile, analysts shared their views on the visit of the delegation of Islamic Clerics of Pakistan to Afghanistan.
“Besides the mediation between the Pakistani Taliban and the government of Pakistan, some economic and commercial issues and common problems between Afghanistan and Pakistan will also be discussed with this delegation,” said Mohammad Hassan Haqyar, political analyst.
"They have chosen a double policy, they do not recognize the Islamic Emirate, but they are attempting to show the world that they have control in Afghanistan,” said Ahmad Khan Andar, another political analyst.
Talks between the Tahreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and the Pakistani government started a few months ago and both sides reached a ceasefire for an undetermined time.
