KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok):  The Afghan Womeninfo-icon Network (AWN) on Saturday expressed deep concern over uncertainties plaguing the ongoing peace negotiations and asked the US and other parties involved to make ceasefire their top priority.

Marya Akrami, AWN chief, told a press conference in Kabul that they were deeply concerned about implications of the peace talks and lack of transparency in the process.

She said there had been a lack of sharing accurate and credible information about the ongoing talks amid rumors in social media about elections and propaganda about the establishment of an interim government.

She said signing of a memorandum of understanding between the US and the Talibaninfo-icon without informing the Afghan people about the content would negatively impact the process.

She termed the peace process as important and announced full support to any step and effort in this regard.

She said all sides, including the US, regional and international organizations and its member states, politicians and Taliban should realize that peace would come only if an agreement was reached with the Afghan government.

“We the Afghan women urge the United States of America to share the content of all peace talks clearly and in a timely manner with the Afghan government and people”, she said.

The AWN by releasing a resolution released requested US troops’ withdrawal from Afghanistaninfo-icon in accordance with international conventions and commitments, in particular the bilateral security agreement (BSA) between Afghanistan and the United States.
