Over the weekend, Afghan government troops in the north of the country, abandoned their posts and fled to neighboring Tajikistan. The reason, a Taliban advance they felt they were ill-equipped to oppose.
It's a pattern playing out across the country, with the Taliban now controlling about one-third of the country's 421 districts. These gains come as international troops continue to pull-out from the country. A scenario that's left many Afghans worried about their future.

Also neighboring Pakistan, has long been seen as having influence over the Taliban. For that reason, Pakistan's involvement in the peace process is seen as crucial to its outcome.
Relations between Pakistan and the Taliban go way back:
The group itself was formed in the early 1990s primarily by Pashtun students in Pakistani madrassas or Islamic religious schools. Pakistan was one of only three countries that recognised the Taliban when it ruled Afghanistan between 1996 and 2001. And in the last few years, Pakistan has played a key role in bringing the Taliban to the talks table.
