Pakistan’s relations with Taliban have been in trouble since coming to power
Ever since the Taliban government came to power in Afghanistan, its relations with Pakistan have been on the rocks. At the same time, the way Pakistan has taken action to return Afghan refugees from its country to Afghanistan, the Taliban is even more irritated.
