Pak's Hina to visit Kabul for talks on Taliban
clean media correspondent
Islamabad: 29 jan, (CMC) Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar will visit Kabul on February 1 to boost Pakistan-Afghanistan ties and efforts to engage the Taliban that were affected by the assassination of former Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani last year. 
    During a recent address in parliament, Khar said Rabbani's assassin had travelled to Afghanistan from a refugee camp in Pakistan but the two sides have made little headway in identifying those who planned the killing.
  At the same time, the Foreign Office has reiterated that Pakistan will support any Afghan-led reconciliation process in Afghanistan. 
  Analysts have noted that Islamabad is keen to re-engage with Kabul as it wants to curtail the role India will play in Afghanistan following the withdrawal of US troops.
