Addressing workers of his party, the Junbish-i-Milli Islami Afghanistaninfo-icon (JMA), the former anti-Soviet resistance leader questioned the armed rebels what they were fighting for.

“If doctor sahib (president-elect Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai) permits, I would engage in direct dialogue with Taliban and tell them what problems war has resolved for us in the past 40 years,” Dostum stated.

He hoped the Ahmadzai administration would steer the country out of its multiple problems. They would meet all campaign promises, he said.
