In an analytical article looking at the current state of Pakistani-Afghan and Pakistani-US-relations, a number of experts are quoted. AAN’s Thomas Ruttig is in it with this comment: ‘[He] believes the country’s leaders have made it clear to the U.S. that they think they have a major role in Afghanistan’s future. “Pakistan wants to gain back full control over Taliban leaders residing in their country and over possible talks conducted by them,” he said.’
