JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Urging Talibaninfo-icon to resume the stalled peace process, a number of civil societyinfo-icon activists in eastern Nangarhar province have asked international community to closely monitor the peace process to make it resulted-oriented.

Human Rights and Eradication of Violence Organization (HREVO) organized a press conference and demanded reforms and a proper policy for peace talks.

Dr. Naimatullah Hamdard, director HREO, asked Taliban to announce ceasefire before commencement of peace talks which should be successfully ended with security of Afghanistaninfo-icon. “The international community should support peace talks and should build pressure over the parties concerned to earnestly take the process forward.”

Shakirullah, a participant in the conference, said peace remained the only and final option and added “Pakistaninfo-icon is the prime hurdle in taking the peace talks forward. We hope Taliban group will come to negotiating table,” he added. 

Dr. Khushal Qureshi, a civil society activist, said: “Afghans have faded up of fighting.”

The conference concluded with demands from the political parties to intensify efforts for peace in the country. They demanded the United Nations to cut off support to the countries which did not support the peace.
