Hekmatyar invites Karzai to deal signing ceremony
A statement from Karzai’s office said HIA delegation head Mohammad Amin Karim met with the former president at his office on Tuesday.
The HIA delegation praised Karzai’s efforts for peace and invited the former leader on behalf of Gulbadin Hekmatyar to the peace deal’s signing ceremony expected to take place in near future.
Karzai thanked Hekmayar for the invitation and expressed his happiness over the HIA’s joining of the peace process. He called the HIA’s move to join the peace process a significant step towards creating the environment of peace, calm and brotherhood in the country.
The landmark peace agreement between the HIA and the Afghan government was signed Thursday last and the accord is expected to be signed by President Ghani and Hekmatyar soon.
The former president hoped the return of the HIA would prove beneficial for the peace process. He said the people of Afghanistan were daily killed for the benefits of outsiders and the Afghans could deal with the scourge through their unity.
