Shun foreign reliance, Hekmatyar tells politicians
KABUL (Pajhwok): Hezb-i-Islami Afghanistan (HIA) leader Gulbadin Hekmatyar has called on Afghan political parties to join their forces for establishing “a sovereign government system” in Afghanistan and stop relying on foreigners in this regard.
In his Eid message, Hekmatyar said the Afghans should be let resolve their problems themselves in order the conflict could be brought to an end.
Keeping in mind the past experiences, the HIA violent faction chief urged the Afghan people and political parties to boycott reaching power with support, money and weapons of foreigners and commit themselves to not shedding a drop of blood or firing a single bullet in future transfer of powers.
Hekmatar said peace and security could come to Afghanistan only when all foreign troops leave the country. He called for an end to foreign interferences in Afghanistan, saying the Afghan should be allowed to resolve their problems themselves.
The HIA leader said all Afghan tribes had historically lived as brothers and an environment of equality and they had jointly defended the motherland and frustrated attempts at dividing them.
But the invaders had the plan from the day one that they would permanently occupy Afghanistan and if it was not possible, they would divide the country and create conditions that prolonged the conflict, he believed.
