SHARANA (Pajhwok): The residents of southeastern Paktika province say they are deeply concerned about vagueness in the ongoing peace talks between the US and Talibaninfo-icon representatives in Qatar.

US special envoy for peace Zalmay Khalilzad has resumed his talks with Taliban officials based in Doha. The two sides have completed eight rounds of talks and the just started ninth round of talks is believed to be crucial.

Habib Rahman, a resident of Paktika province, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the Afghans were tired of the war and wanted lasting peace.

“Peace talks between the two sides have long been ongoing, but their real outcome is yet to be shared with the Afghans, it’s worrying,” he added.

He stressed that real talks should be started between the Afghan government and Taliban in order to end the conflict.

Ziaul Haq, a resident of Urgon district, said: “Peace is as vital for us as human beings need oxygen.” He also stressed the need for negotiations between the Afghan government and Taliban.

Ameena, a resident of Janikhel district, said her son, a policeman, was killed two years ago. “I listen radio every day in hope to hear a good news about peace.”

Khorshid Aman Katawazai, civil societyinfo-icon coordination head, told Pajhwok that people were optimistic about but they were concerned about the ambiguous talks between the US and the Taliban.

Aziz Aziz, a member of the provincial council, said the Afghans desired honorable and stable peace. “We want clear information about peace talks, nothing should be hidden, he added.
