Peace negotiators need nation’s support: Abdullah

Peace negotiators need nation’s support: Abdullah

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The High Council for National Reconciliation chairman says the government’s negotiating team is in Doha to resolve differences with Talibaninfo-icon.

Dr. Abdullah, speaking at an event marking the death anniversary of former president Burhanuddin Rabbani in Kabul on Friday, said the current high level of violence in the country was unacceptable.

Slamming the continued conflict as a grave miscalculation, he said peace negotiators needed the nation’s support and rifts within the country would undermine their position.

“Nobody is the winner in war and nobody is a loser in peace talks,” remarked Abdullah, who called the ongoing dialogue in Qatar a big test for the nation.

The talks are not going to be easy, as there are complex issues on the table, according to the peace panel head. Hard decisions would have to be taken to make progress, he maintained.

“For sure, the government will float a ceasefire proposal. The Taliban are expected to suggest an interim government,” Abdullah said.
