Can Nawaz Sharif Bring Peace To Afghanistan?

During his first visit to Kabul since his election for a third term in May this year, Mr Sharif on Saturday met with Afghanistan’s President Karzai, and assured the leader that “Pakistan would continue to extend all possible facilitation for the Afghan peace process”.
He said the release of Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the former Taliban number two, freed from years of detention last September, would help to jumpstart peace negotiations with the Taliban.
Afghanistan considers that Pakistan holds significant influence over the Taliban, who are believed to launch attacks from bases in the country.
