Pakistan's national security adviser warned U.S. officials on Monday that his country "will have to face the brunt of any instability that may engulf Afghanistan" as the 12-year war there winds down at the end of the year.
Pakistan authorities said they will let go the highest-ranking Taliban member they have in prison, as a means of jump-starting peace talks.
Aziz said Pakistan also supports an Afghan-led peace process with the Taliban.
"In pursuing this goal of the responsible end to the long war in Afghanistan, we have to ensure that Afghanistan successfully transitions into a period of stability, and that past mistakes are not repeated," Aziz told a crowd of diplomats, including U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
