Afghan Foreign Minister Mohammad Haneef Atmar left Kabul for Istanbul on Thursday to participate at the Afghanistan-Turkey-Pakistan trilateral meeting.
Top diplomats from Afghanistan, Turkey, and Pakistan are scheduled to hold a trilateral meeting to discuss the Afghan peace process in Istanbul on Friday.
“Foreign Ministers will discuss success of Afghanistan peace process, resumption of peace talks between the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the Taliban, strengthening regional consensus in support of peace, the role of Turkey and Pakistan, and strengthening trilateral relations,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
On the sidelines of the meeting, Foreign Minister Atmar is scheduled to hold bilateral meetings aimed at strengthening political, security, and economic cooperation.
The meeting comes as the Istanbul Conference scheduled to be held on 24 April was postponed.
