There was no problem in concluding the peace agreement the HIA, the CEO told a cabinet meeting. The Afghans badly needed peace and there was no obstacle to the process, he observed.

“We recently heard comments that we do not want peace, but we assure people that we have always supported reconciliation process with HIA. We have been involved in making the talks fruitful,” Abdullah said.

Abdullah, who pledged stoutly defending people’s rights, insisted the long-elusive peace pact would not damage the national interest.However, he acknowledged the accord would not resolve all problems but its signing would be a significant step.
