Abdullah seeks clear policy on Taliban talks

Abdullah seeks clear policy on Taliban talks

Oct 04, 2011 - 20:59

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Key opposition leader Dr Abdullah Abdullah on Tuesday welcomed President Hamid Karzai's recent remarks against the Talibaninfo-icon militants and Pakistaninfo-icon. However, he asked for a clear policy on the peace process.

Karzai on Monday accused Pakistan of failing to support his country in combating terrorism, regretting Islamabad's non-cooperation in ridding the region of the scourge.  He said he would call a traditional Loya Jirga to rethink the roadmap for peace reconciliation in the near future.

"I believe there may be problems, but Afghans should be told the whole truth (about the reconciliation drive) in the national interest," Abdullah, the former foreign minister, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

A clear policy based on public aspirations should be adopted on relations with Pakistan and talks with Taliban, stressed the Coalition for Change and Hope leader.

About the president's overnight speech, he said: "This stance should not be on a single issue, but a similar position is also needed on other issues of national interests. Let it be a new beginning."
