KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): Tribal elders and religious scholars from southwestern Khost province on Thursday demanded the peace agreement between the government and the Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon be implemented as soon as possible.

The tribal elders and religious scholars, at a meeting in support of the Brussels Conference, said total implementation of the peace deal would encourage other rebels to join the peace process.

They praised the international community for fresh aid pledges of $15.2 billion to Afghanistan. The participants stressed utilisation of the assistance for infrastructural projects.

Maulviinfo-icon Mohammad Sardar Zadran, a scholar and head of the Afghanistan Mujahideeninfo-icon National Council, said the peace pact should be implemented in its entirety.

“We ask the central government and HIA leadership to implement their agreement as soon as possible; otherwise the country would plunge into more serious problems,” he said.

Governor Hakam Khan Habibi hoped implementation of the agreement would encourage the Talibaninfo-icon militants to renounce insurgency and join the peace process.

He also asked government leaders to create a mechanism for the transparent use of the aid pledged at the Brussels Conference.

“The international community has done its part; now it is our responsibility to evolve an effective mechanism for the proper use of the aid to bring prosperity to Afghans,” he remarked.

A provincial council member, Qamar Ali Lakanwal, urged the people to strongly support their security forces and the government.“We all strongly support our local and central governments and their policies.”

A number of other local officials, who attended the meeting also announced their support for the government. They called for the government to use all its resources to ensure peace and stability across the country.
