He said the post-2014 situation after withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan will also be discussed.

  1. The interaction between two parties one of which habitually giving the dictation and the other obediently taking it, and acting on it dutifully can hardly be termed a dialogue. If still in doubt, just read the following report, and comments thereon, in today' s paper: US consent awaited: Decision on new army chief, CJCSC deferred.

    I wish election symbols were allotted to political parties keeping in mind the disposition of their leaders.
