49th Session of UNHRC: Q&A Session during EFSAS Side-event/Webinar
The event was followed by a very vibrant and enlightening Q&A session during which the audience and speakers exchanged opinions on various topics. For instance, on the question, ‘How is Pakistan’s foreign policy towards the Taliban going to develop in the coming months given the Taliban’s support for the TTP?’, Mr. Saikal argued that the equation between Pakistan and the Taliban has changed since the latter came to power, as Pakistan’s intelligence agency – Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) would like to keep them subservient in order to control them. As a result, Pakistan is likely to ensure that the international community does not recognize the extremist group and encourage international NGOs from Afghanistan to set up offices in Pakistan.
