HIA delegation expected in Kabul to resume talks

Aug 05, 2016 - 15:28

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A delegation of the Gulbadin Hekmatyar-led Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon (HIA) is expected to arrive in capital Kabul over the next two days for the resumption of peace talks.

The HIA and the government representatives held protracted peace talks in Kabul and the parlays lasted about two months and the two sides reached a draft agreement.

The High Peace Councilinfo-icon (HPC) handed over a copy of the draft agreement to the HIA delegation to deliver it to HIA leader Hekmatyar, but the process hit a snag after Hekmatyar proposed some minor changes to the draft agreement.

HIA political affairs in-charge Dr. Ghairat Baheer told Pajhwok Afghan News that an HIA delegation led by Eng. Karim Amin would arrive in Kabul over the next two days.

He said other members of the delegation were Mohammad Rassoul, Haji Abdul Malik and Haji Attiqullah Safi.

Dr. Baheer said the two sides had differences over a few matters and the differences would be resolved during the upcoming talks.

He said the peace talks would be resumed from where they stalled and hoped this time around, the next round of talks would yield positive result.

However, he said it was up to the government who much it was interested in peace.

The HPC and the government have so far said nothing in this regard.
