High peace committee urges Taliban to resume talks
JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Members of high peace committee in eastern Nangarhar province on Tuesday urged Taliban to seize opportunity and enter into result-oriented talks to put an end to the violence in the country.
The high peace committee denounced Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansoor’s message to continue the insurgency.
The second round of peace parlays was delayed soon after the reports of Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammad Omar’s demise.
Haji Malak Nazir, chief of high peace committee, urged Taliban fighters to resume talks. “It was reported that Mullah Omar was died years before then who did fight and who did share media reports with his name?” he questioned.
“You should come to Afghanistan if you are Afghan and you should stop further bloodshed of Afghan if you are true Afghan but if you are not Afghan than many foreigners eager to shed Afghans’ bloodshed. It will not make big difference if you are among them too,” he remarked.
Maulvi Abdul Zahir Haqqani, a religious leader, also called peace talks the only way to settle dispute.
Abdul Aziz Khairkhwah, another cleric, suggested Taliban to prefer peace talks over fighting since peace was the only option.
