‘Pakistan-gifted peace won’t bring stability’
Speaking at a meeting with Meshrano Jirga and provincial council members, Muslimyar said: “We have gone through pains and gains in the past and I personally do not accept a peace process which is dominated by others not the Afghan themselves.”
He said they had been calling the Taliban and other opponents as their brothers and expected the same from them. “But if they consider us, our people as enemy, then it is our demand from the government to eliminate them.”
Muslimyar said a durable peace in Afghanistan could be established only when Pakistan withdrew its support from groups staging attacks in different cities of Afghanistan.
The Senate chairman was speaking a day after a 20-member delegation of Afghan officials flew to Qatar to attend a research conference on peace in Afghanistan.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah also spoke on the occasion, saying the establishment of peace was the main demand of the people of Afghanistan, but the process should ensure that rights and dignity of every single Afghan was protected.
The top government official said the ongoing war in Afghanistan had roots where it had been planned, funded and directed, taking heavy toll on countrymen on a daily basis.
