Peace to be restored at every cost: MoFA
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) said on Tuesday that groups disrupting security of the country would be fought until durable peace was established.
After establishment of unity government, peace efforts with the Taliban have increased but both sides failed to hold a comprehensive round of negotiation, which was scheduled to be held in March, MoFA spokesman Ahmad Shekib Mustaghni told a press conference.
It had been nine months that the new government was established, he said there was no sign of peace talks with Taliban. He said that stability in Afghanistan was in the interest of neighboring countries.
He said Afghanistan was committed to its agreements with Pakistan and Kabul was also waiting for commitment from its neighbor.
“Afghanistan prefers and prioritizes peace but the Afghan government will not stop building pressure on groups involved in disrupting peace of the country,” he added.
He said a high-level Afghan delegation led by second deputy of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mohammad Mohaqiq had participated in the meeting proposed for talks with the Taliban representatives in Oslo, the capital of Norway.
But he said that talks were informal and just to know each other view point.
