Deputy Minister at Afghan Peace Conference

A senior diplomat was in Kabul on Tuesday to partake in the first meeting of a new peace initiative known as the “Kabul Process”.
Deputy Foreign Minister for Asia and Pacific Affairs Ebrahim Rahimpour is representing Iran at the head of a delegation in the two-day conference which ends today, ISNA reported.
Delegates from 23 nations, including the United States, India, China and Pakistan, as well as European Union, United Nations and NATO representatives are attending the peace meeting, which aims to set the stage for peace talks between Afghan leaders and the Taliban militant group under multinational support.
The Afghan TV channel Tolonews reported that the conference was opened by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, who extended an olive branch to the Taliban but warned that time is running out for the radical militia.
“We are offering a chance for peace but this is not an open-ended offer,” Ghani said.
“Time is running out ... this is the last chance: take it or face consequences.”
The meeting started with a minute of silence for victims of last week terror attacks in Kabul that left more than 100 people dead and wounded hundreds.
