PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistan has asked the United States and the world at large to interact with the Taliban government.

The Pakistani foreign minister told representatives of US media outlets on Wednesday that isolating the Taliban could have dangerous consequences for all.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also urged the Taliban administration to persuade the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) into shunning their activities in the interest of peace and stability in the region.

“Hopefully, the Afghan Taliban will use their influence on TTP so that the group accepts the Constitution of Pakistan and disarm,” he said in a speech ay the Washington-based US Institute of Peace.

In an interview with the Associated Press, the foreign minister urged the global fraternity to help the Taliban build their capacity to combat terrorist outfits.

Pakistan’s top diplomat also underlined the need for the immediate release of the Afghan central bank’s reserves frozen by the Biden administration.

Pakistan foreign minister statement comes at a time when Kabul recently hosted talks between TTP and the Pakistani government.

Acting Afghan government also often said that it was committed to Doha pact and would not allow the use of its soil against any country and demanded other nation to reciprocate the commitment.
