An international peace conference called ‘Kabul Process’ is underway in Afghan capital.
Representatives of around twenty eight countries and organizations including Pakistan, the UN, NATO and EU are attending the meeting, which aims to build international support on ways to restore security in the country.
Addressing the conference Afghan President Ashraf Ghani invited Taliban to peace talks, calling it their last chance to give up 16-year insurgency and join political process.
Ashraf Ghani said this is final opportunity for Taliban to become part of national mainstream.
Extending an olive branch, Ghani said if the group is prepared to join peace negotiations, Afghan government will allow them to open an office.
President Ghani said over 150 people were killed and more than 300 wounded in Kabul’s diplomatic quarter attack last week.
