KABUL (PAN): Identifying durable peace and tranquility in Afghanistan as his top priorities, presidential candidate Qutbuddin Hilal has said there will be no pre-conditions for holding reconciliation talks with the Taliban and Hezb-i-Islami if he wins the upcoming ballot.

In an exclusive interview with Pajhwok Afghan News, Hilal alleged concrete steps had not been taken over the past decade to ensure lasting peace and tranquility in the country.

“Our key goal will be holding talks with armed militants. We will ponder on their grievances and demands. I will travel to remote areas, whenever the insurgents want, for the sole purpose to secure peace,” he promised.

Referring to Taliban’s office in Qatar, he said it was an excellent initiative for returning peace to Afghanistan but the move was scuttled due to trivial differences.
