KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Gulbadin Hekmatyar-led Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon (HIA) is set to resume the stalled peace talks with the Afghan government soon, a reliable source said on Thursday.

A source close to the HIA peace delegation, wishing not to be named, told Pajhwok Afghan News their delegation would soon travel to Kabul to resume talks with the Afghan government.

Earlier, the Afghan government and the HIA held talks for about two months before signing a draft agreement.

But the talks faltered when Hekmatyar made some changes to the draft agreement contents and the High Peace Councilinfo-icon (HPC) said no changes would be brought to the agreement signed by HPC Head Pir Syed Ahmad Gilani and the HIA side.

The HIA negotiators went back and did not return, but the HPC had said they were waiting for their response.

The source in the HIA delegation expressed the hope that the two sides had few points of disagreement which would be resolved during the HIA delegation’s upcoming visit to Kabul.

The HIA peace delegation was headed by Eng. Amin Karim. The HPC has not yet spoken about the new development.
