Solutions sought for conflict in Pakistan

March 2, 2013 at 4:02 PM

KABUL, Afghanistan, March 2 (UPI) -- A Pakistani politician called on the United States to include Pakistan in negotiations over ending hostilities in neighboring Afghanistan.

Maulana Fazlur Rehman, head of Jamiat-e-Islam-Fazl, a Pakistani political party, told the Khaama Press Saturday any solution to the Afghanistan problem must also include Pakistan. He said negotiations between the Afghan government and the Taliban should also include Pakistani officials because Taliban fighters regularly cross into Pakistan.

With most American fighters set to leave Afghanistan by next year, Rehman said a plan needs to be put in place now.

"If the U.S. accepts its mistakes and wants to rectify these mistakes, we welcome this development," he said.
