ISLAMABAD (AP) -- Pakistani officials say visiting U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice has discussed efforts to revive Afghan peace talks.
Rice met with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and army chief Gen. Raheel Sharif on Sunday. Two Pakistani officials say they discussed efforts to revive talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information.
The U.S. Embassy did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
A Pakistani army statement said Rice and Sharif "recognized the continued need for close coordination for ensuring peace and stability in Afghanistan and the region."
Kabul held peace talks with the Taliban in Pakistan in July, but the negotiations were suspended after the announcement of Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar's death.
