HIA initially hailed deal with US: Musazai

HIA initially hailed deal with US: Musazai

Jun 02, 2012 - 20:20

KABUL (PAN): A Hezb-i-Islami Afghanistan (HIA) delegation that recently held talks with government representatives in Kabul had initially welcomed the strategic cooperation with the US, an official said on Saturday.

Complete details of the deal were shared with the HIA team on directives from President Hamid Karzai, foreign ministry spokesman Janan Musazai told a news conference.

After receiving information about it, the spokesman said, the HIA believed the agreement, when signed, would be “a big achievement for Afghanistan, because it clearly ensures the country’s dignity and interest.”

But the group later suspended peace talks with government and opposed the signing of the pact with the US.  

The party’s spokesman, Dr. Ghairat Baheer, told Pajhwok Afghan News they rejected any agreement that legalised the presence of foreigners in Afghanistan. 

President Hamid Karzai and his US counterpart signed the strategic partnership agreement at the Presidential Palace in Kabul on May 2.
