Afghan conflict needs world’s sincerity: Mutasim
In his message in connection with Feb 15 that marks the withdrawal of former Soviet troops from Afghanistan, the ex-Taliban finance minister said the Afghanistan dispute was of international nature, which needed global community’s since cooperation to be settled.
He said the pullout of Soviet troops in the late 1980s was indeed the success of Mujahideen and it was the day of independence.
He said Afghans were celebrating the withdrawal of Soviet troops at a time when the withdrawal of US and other foreign troops was underway from the country.
“The Afghan political elites should learn from past experiences and don’t allow the political process to be derailed,” he warned.
He called upon the country leadership to work hard toward achieving progress and development of the country. He said wars only served the interest of anti-state elements. “The leadership of the country should seek a political solution to the dispute,” he remarked.
He stressed all parties to the conflict should cease fighting and shun their differences. All Afghans should forget about their past differences and come forward to rebuild their country.
Agha Jan believed the withdrawal of US and NATO troops from Afghanistan would be a great opportunity to establish peace in the country.
