KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Representatives of the European Union (EU) and the Afghan government have discussed an Afghan-owned peace process and reforms in the security sector.

The officials conferred on specific steps in operationalising the offer to support Afghanistaninfo-icon’s peace process made by EU High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini at the Geneva Ministerial Conference on Afghanistan on November 28, 2018.

Co-chaired by Afghan National Security Advisor Dr. Hamdullah Mohib and EU Special Envoy Roland Kobia, the meeting addressed the five areas outlined by the EU in Geneva, the UK embassy in Kabul said in a statement.

Making the peace process more inclusive, reforms, including the security sector, reintegration of former fighters and their families, acting as possible guarantor of a future peace agreement and regional trade and connectivity were addressed.

The participants also deliberated on the forthcoming 3rd Kabul Process Conference as a crucial opportunity to reaffirm the centrality of the Afghan government in the peace process and to strengthen the consensus on a national and regional basis. 

The EU highlighted its multi-faceted support to a sustainable peace in Afghanistan and reiterated its readiness to contribute at all stages of a peace process, it added.
