Pakistan hosts peace conference for Afghan leaders

Pakistan hosted a conference to bring together more than 50 Afghan leaders, including politicians and tribal elders in a new initiative to bolster a faltering peace process aiming to end Afghanistan’s lengthy civil war. There were however no representatives of the Afghan Taliban militants, who have been fighting for years to expel foreign forces and defeat the U.S.-backed government in Kabul. Relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan have been strained in recent years amid long-standing allegations by Kabul and Washington that Pakistan has been sheltering the Taliban militants since U.S.-led forces removed them from power in 2001, something Islamabad denies.
