Pakistani FM: Was Pakistan a safe haven for the Taliban?

Shah Mahmood Qureshi discusses his country’s stance on the Taliban’s takeover in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan is a landlocked nation surrounded by six countries: Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, China, Iran and Pakistan.

Its longest border is shared with Pakistan, so the recent Taliban takeover in Kabul presents a new geopolitical challenge for Islamabad.

As world leaders gathered in New York for the 76th United Nations General Assembly, Afghanistan dominated the agenda. And that is where Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi talked to Al Jazeera.
