Taliban Dictating Terms In Afghanistan?

NEW DELHI: Amidst speculation that Islamabad and Washington are in talks to allow U.S. bases in Pakistan to facilitate counter-terrorism operations in Afghanistan once foreign troops withdraw, the Taliban has warned Afghanistan’s neighbours to not allow what it calls a ‘historic mistake’. Pakistani foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has told parliament his government would never allow any such move. In this episode of ‘The Gist’, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale and Lt Gen RK Sawhney (Retd), Former DG, Military Intelligence, discuss the flux Afghanistan is in and whether the Taliban is having a free run.
