Sources further said that Alice Wells has arrived in Pakistan soon after a visit to Kabul is of great significance.
The Taliban leaders residing outside Afghanistan pose a hindrance to the United States-led Afghan peace process, a senior State Department official said Saturday.
In a statement, Ambassador Alice Wells, the senior bureau official for the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs at the US Department of State, explained that American leadership desires decisive moves in the peace talks.Wells, who is scheduled to arrive in Islamabad today on an official visit to meet top Pakistani officials, had announced earlier that Washington had put the country on notice again and expects unequivocal cooperation in ending the sanctuaries the Taliban have been enjoying in its territory — a claim Islamabad denies.
“Pakistan is on notice that we expect its unequivocal cooperation ending sanctuaries that the Taliban have enjoyed since the remnants of their toppled regime fled into Pakistan in 2001,” the ambassador had said in an official testimony before the US House Foreign Affairs Committee.
