Gulbadin Hekmatyar is optimistic that negotiations between the Ashraf Ghani government and the Taliban would help end the conflict in the country.

"Pakistan has an interest in Afghanistan’s political affairs," Hekmatyar said In an interview with RFE/RL. “Pakistan is supporting the Taliban. There is no doubt about it."

Due to mounting global pressure on it to rake concrete action on the Taliban, he said, Pakistan viewed the war in Afghanistan as more detrimental than beneficial to its interests.

Lingering differences among the political elite on peace parleys with the Taliban would he resolved, the 67-year-old ex-premier hoped, warning against sidelining prominent opposition figures.

“Peace should not be monopolised,” remarked Hekmatyar, who plans to context the presidential vote in September. “Peace is a national issue. An agreement requires us all to engage honestly and unconditionally.”
