KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Second Vice President Sarwar Danish on Thursday said the previous government had failed in its efforts to restore peace and eliminate terrorism.

Addressing participants of a national conference in Kabul, Danish said the recent surge in violence across the country was the outcome of the previous government’s failure.

A former caretaker higher educationinfo-icon and justice minister, he stressed the need for a transparent and inclusive peace process, but cautioned against compromise on the constitution.

He believed equipping and supporting Afghan security forces, ensuring good governance, uniform development and eliminating corruption could help stabilise and develop the country.

The VP stressed sacrifices rendered by the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSFinfo-icon) should be highlighted and appreciated because peace could be achieved from a position of strength.

Danish warned if the Afghan army lacked defence capabilities, it would encourage the enemy to stage more attacks, calling strong defence the key to peace and stability.

He reiterated the unity government’s resolve to eliminate corruption, implement reforms and ensure justice and transparency in all affairs.

A peaceful Afghanistaninfo-icon was in the region’s interest and instability could put the entire region in danger, Danish argued. 

UN secretary general’s special representative Nicholas Haysom said the Afghan-led peace process had some flaws, but added the worldinfo-icon body supported the initiative.
