In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we look at Pakistan’s decision to sit out the Bonn conference on Afghanistan.
Naveed Hussain, The Express Tribune’s national editor, says the boycott sends a significant message to the international community. Pakistan’s refusal to attend the conference signals the common sentiment in the country over the breach of sovereignty by the Nato attack over the weekend.
Hussain says Pakistan’s absence makes the conference lose its effectiveness, although significant results were not to be expected from the talks.
He also adds that without Pakistan, peace in Afghanistan and negotiations with the Taliban is not possible.
