Islamabad, Mon, 22 Oct 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Oct. 22 (ANI): Pakistan and the United States have finalized a deal regarding a new bilateral commission to lure the Afghan Taliban to the negotiating table, during U.S. special envoy to Af-Pak Marc Grossman's visit to Islamabad.

According to sources, the two countries will identify groups for reconciliation and facilitate smooth transition of power following the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, reports The Express Tribune.

Details of the proposed commission were not immediately available.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Moazzam Ali Khan said both the countries were working on 'several proposals' on the future of Afghanistan.

The formation of a commission had been in the pipeline for months, and Grossman's recent visit proved to be momentous owing to significant ground covered by both Pakistan and U.S., the paper said.

"The proposed bilateral commission will help reduce the trust deficit between the two sides," an official was quoted, as saying.

Grossman, who wrapped up his two-day trip to Islamabad, appreciated Pakistan's 'support for an Afghan political process, including through the US-Afghanistan-Pakistan Core Group.' (ANI)
