LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): Members of the Peace Movement in southern Helmand province have embarked on a new foot journey to the Talibaninfo-icon-controlled Musa Qala district to urge peace and ceasefire.

Leader of the movement, Iqbal Khyber, said they had previously held meetings and talks with the government, foreign forces and officials of various foreign embassies and those efforts had positive impact.

He said this time their foot journey to Musa Qala district involved 30 people, including an eight-years-old child. The journey participants would meet Taliban officials and local residents to win their support for the ongoing peace process.

He said they would convey their peace message to Taliban and local residents in Musa Qala and hoped their message would be listened to.

Another member of the peace journey, Bacha Khan Muladad, said they were optimistic residents living in areas under Taliban would pledge their cooperation towards peace and ceasefire.

He said they would not only travel to Musa Qala but several other insecure areas to discuss peace and ceasefire with common people and Taliban insurgents.
