Islamabad, June 1: Pakistan’s President Mamnoon Hussain on Wednesday said there was no military solution to the problem in Afghanistan and emphasised the need for political dialogue to resolve the issue. His comments at the opening of parliament session came amid increased violence in Afghanistan after the Taliban refused to join the peace talks and launched their annual fighting season last month, Xinhua news agency reported. Pakistan encouraged the Taliban to send a delegation of its Qatar-based Afghan representatives to Islamabad in late April to discuss prospects for peace talks. However, the Afghan government also did not sent its delegation following the April 19 deadly attack in Kabul. (IANS)
