WASHINGTON (Pajhwok): The United States on Monday suggested it was cautiously optimistic about the Afghan reconciliation effort by the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC), ruling out any change in end conditions.

“We are ready to accept any political resolution of the conflict between the Afghan government and the Talibaninfo-icon so long as the outcome of any process ensures that the Taliban and other armed opposition groups end violence.”

A State Department spokesperson told Pajhwok Afghan News the insurgents must break associations with international terrorismand accept Afghanistaninfo-icon’s constitution, including its protections for womeninfo-icon and minorities.

“These end conditionsare a means to protect the significant gains made by Afghanistan over the last 14 years,” the spokesperson said when asked about reports that OIC would host a conference on Afghan reconciliation.
