Daudzai hints at changes in reconciliation policy
At the end of a two days condolence ceremony for the assassinated chief peace negotiator in Islamabad, Umar Daudzai said the reconciliation effort would not be scuttled.
Karzai had already held out a similar assurance, the ambassador said, suggesting that some changes could be brought to peace policy. However, he did not elaborate on the changes.
Press Attaché Zardasht Shams said fateha was offered for Rabbani on the second consecutive day and people wrote their observations in the condolence book.
Diplomats from the UK, Brunei, Russian and Canadian missions, Pakistani lawmakers, including Senator Zahid Khan, Senator Bushra Gauhar and Senator Afrasiab Khattak of the Awami National Party and government officials attended the gathering.
"We will see what kind of role our neighbours can play and how they meet Afghanistan's expectations in this regard," said the ambassador, who pledged to carry forward Rabbani's mission.
