The Afghan Taliban on Thursday said that they are ready to visit the country to meet Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan if he formally invites them for negotiations to end the 18-year conflict in Afghanistan, reported BBC Urdu.

Sohail Shaheen, a spokesman for the Taliban’s political office in Qatar’s capital Doha, told the BBC Urdu that if Prime Minister Khan extended a formal invitation, they will accept it.

“We frequently visit countries in the region and would surely go to Pakistan, too, which is our Muslim neighbour, if there is a formal invitation from Islamabad,” he said.
