Time is ripe for lasting peace in Afghanistan: JI chief

May 22, 2015 - 12:18

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Following Afghan government invitation, Pakistaninfo-icon’s Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Senator Sirajul Haq said he would head his party delegation to visit Afghanistaninfo-icon by mid June, media reports.

The Pakistani The News reports Siraj as saying: “There should be people-to-people contacts. We should see the interest of Afghan people rather of one group.”  

He was visiting Kabul following invitation by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. “Brotherly relations and trust is necessary between the two Muslim neighbouring countries for peace in the region,” he said.

However, the JI chief vowed that hurdles in the establishment of peace in Afghanistan have been removed after the withdrawal of US and NATOinfo-icon forces from Afghanistan.

After the withdrawal of US-led NATO forces, he said, situation had completely changed in the region and it was time for both the countries to increase their efforts for restoring peace in the region.

“We don’t want to have relations with one group in Afghanistan. We want relationship with all people of Afghanistan,” he added. “The people from both sides should strengthen their relationship. The stronger and peaceful Afghanistan is in the interest of Pakistan,” he concluded.
