Badakhshan gathering backs govt-HIA peace agreement

Badakhshan gathering backs govt-HIA peace agreement

Sep 20, 2016 - 19:05

FAIZABAD (Pajhwok): Hundreds of people on Tuesday attended a gathering in northeastern Badakhshan province, welcoming a possible peace deal beween Gulbadin Hikmatyar-led Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon (HIA) and the Afghan government.

Organized by a splinter HIA faction led former economy minister Abdul Hadi Arghaniwal, the event was attended by over 300 participants, who asked the Talibaninfo-icon to enter a similar deal with the Kabulinfo-icon administration.

Ziaul Haq Waseq, HIA local office head, said Hekmatyar’s peace interlocutors and the Afghan government had been in talks over the past 18 month and a peace agreement in three chapters and 18 articles was going to be signed soon.

He said the ongoing war had been imposed on the people of Afghanistan and no Afghan wanted to be indulged in the conflict.

Ahmad Bashir Samim, head of the provincial council, said some circles who were against the peace talks with Hekmatyar had actually enmity with HIA. He said the peace agreement with Hekmatyar would leave a positive impact on the overall security situation of the country.

Hamdullah Danishi, former commander of HIA and deputy governor of Kunduz province, said all demands of HIA had been met and no group or individual in the government had any problems with the peace agreement. The agreement, he said, would be signed soon.
