Pakistan’s conditions hurt Afghans’ belief in peace: Basim

Pakistan’s conditions hurt Afghans’ belief in peace: Basim

Aug 22, 2019 - 20:13

PUL-I-KHUMRI (Pajhwok): The governor of northern Baghlan province on Thursday said peace was the Afghan government’s top priority but Pakistaninfo-icon’s conditions somehow harmed the peace process.

Ahmad Farid Basim said this while addressing a gathering held in support of peace and Afghan security forces at the Tribal Affairs Department in Pul-i-Khumri, the provincial capital.

The governor said Pakistan’s conditions had weakened the Afghans’ belief in peace and had somehow harmed the peace process.

Basim said the Afghan forces had paid huge price for the security of the mother land and they wanted peace which could strengthen the Afghan forces.

“The Afghan government is committed to peace. Pakistan’s conditions including recognition of Durand Lineinfo-icon as international border by the Afghan government and reduction in ties between Kabulinfo-icon and New Delhi have created doubts in the minds of Afghans about their government.”

The governor  said the only way to defeat the enemies of Afghanistaninfo-icon was next month’s presidential election. He said peace was a lengthy process and the next government could take important decisions regarding peace.

Jirgas Coordination head at the Ministry of Borders and Tribal Affairs, Niaz Mohammad Amiri, said peace efforts should be transparent and the Afghans should be informed about whatever decisions made about peace in their country.

Religious scholar Mualvi Mohammad Raza Rizvi said peace was a divine order and those violating this order were sinners from Islamic perspective.

He said the Afghan forces were offering sacrifices for the soil and for peace and stability, therefore their presence and say in peace talks was crucial.

Concerns about the ongoing peace talks between the US and the Talibaninfo-icon are raised at a time when US special envoy for reconciliation in Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, has arrived in Doha, Qatar, to hold ninth round of talks with the insurgents.
