KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon (HIA) on Thursday said it strongly supported ‘sincere talks’ between government, political parties and armed groups, calling intra-Afghan dialogue the most reliable and authentic approach to end the ongoing conflict.

The HIA in a statement said the Gulbadin Hekmatyar-led party believed that negotiations with foreign support could further deteriorate the situation and might not be effective in developing consensus.

“We truly support the recent negotiations kicked off in Turkey between the Afghan government and the Talibaninfo-icon and want the two sides to get maximum advantage of the opportunity and go ahead with talks patiently until positive results are produced,” the statement said.

The HIA, however, demanded halt to the talks if the Taliban had objection over men representing them in the talks.

A three-day quadrilateral intra-Afghan peace dialogue began on Saturday in the Turkish capital Istanbul, to pave the ground for formal talks.
