Pakistan has taken another initiative to defuse the tension in relations with the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. Pakistan’s National Security Adviser Moeed Yusuf, who had to cancel a visit last week due to protests in Kabul, this time without informing the media, reached Kabul quietly and met Taliban officials there.
