‘DIALOGUE WITH AFGHANISTAN’S NEIGHBOURS: IRAN AND PAKISTAN’ - STRAW
At a press briefing on 21 November, the Foreign Secretary, Jack straw, announced that he would be travelling to Iran and Pakistan for talks: 'It is extremely important that we remain in dialogue with both Iran and Pakistan,' Mr Straw said. These two neighbours of Afghanistan have respectively had direct connections with the non-Taliban, non-Pushtun forces and ethnic groups, and strong ethnic connections with the Pushtun and some connections in recent years with the Taliban. Mr Straw reiterated that 'all of our efforts come under the aegis, and with the authority, of the United Nations,' and he said he hoped that the meeting in Berlin on 26 November 'successfully lays down a good foundation for Afghanistan’s future'. But the Foreign Secretary expressed caution about the Berlin meeting: 'this is a preliminary meeting between the parties with the hope of laying the building blocks for an interim civil administration, but given where Afghanistan has come from, and has got to so far, it is obviously going to take some time before you can really recognise a well-functioning, organised state... but the signs are more hopeful than they were,' he said.
