KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) on Tuesday announced postponing the second Kabul Process conference for almost three weeks in order to make better preparations for the summit.

The ministry officials said the UN Security Council (UNSC) was expected to hold ‘a special meeting’ about Afghanistaninfo-icon in near future.

Nasir Ahmad Andisha, deputy foreign minister, while presenting a report about the ministry’s last year’s achievements, told reporters said that the second meeting of the Kabul Process had to be delayed for three weeks to make required preparation for the event.

He said the Kabul Process meeting was to take place in early February in Kabul to discuss Afghanistan related issues.

“Efforts are in place to gather government and people’s opinions about some important national issues to make a discussion on them in the Kabul Process meeting”, he said.

“Considering the situation that arose in this year’s start, we would try to discuss this situation in a major conference so countries who have problems in their political relations with the worldinfo-icon are able to work jointly about Afghanistan,” he said.

On the other hand, an extraordinary meeting of UNSC would be also held about Afghanistan in neighboring Kazakhstan in near future.

The deputy foreign minister said it was Kazakhstan’s initiative to organize a UNSC meeting about Afghanistan in that country.

“This meeting would focus more on regional economic cooperation…to muster central Asian countries’ cooperation with Afghanistan in the peace process and economy,” he said.

He said UNSC representatives’ visit to Afghanistan was ‘a new season’ of unity among the world body’s members.
