JALALABAD (Pajhwok): The Shinwari tribe in eastern Nangarhar province on Saturday welcomed and supported the ongoing peace talks with the Talibaninfo-icon and urged the militants to enter an intra-Afghan dialogue.

Hundreds of the Shinwari tribe elders, Islamic scholars and youth from six districts assembled in Ghani Khel district on Saturday and urged an early peace dialogue between the government and Taliban militants for reaching peace.

Ismatullah Shinwari, a lawmaker from Nangarhar province, told the gathering that the Shinwari tribe had suffered more than other tribes in the ongoing conflict. He called on the warring parties to agree on truce for the sake of stability and development in the country.

Malak Usman, a tribal elder, urged the warring parties to work for real peace and asked government officials not to sacrifice peace for their positions.

Hundreds of the Shinwari tribe youth had fallen victims to the ongoing conflict in the country, he said, urging the waring parties to stop the war.
