Mohammad Younis Hotak, the Hotkhel tribe council leader, told a press conference in Kabul that all the Afghans were thirsty for peace and the warring parties should choose peace over hostilities.

He thanked President Ashraf Ghani on behalf of the Hotkhel tribe over extending the truce with Taliban militants and supported the peace marchers from southern Helmand province.

He also supported a peace convey on its way to Torkham border crossing from across the Durand Lineinfo-icon.

Atta Jan Haqbayan, Zabul provincial council chief, insulted Mirwais Neka  on social media, said Younis Hotak, who asked government to bring Haqbayan to justice.
