US interfering in on-going govt-Taliban talks: Agha

MAZAR-I-SHARIF (Pajhwok): Afghanistaninfo-icon’s Salvation Council Head Syed Akbar Agha on Thursday alleged that the US was interfering in the ongoing government-Talibaninfo-icon negotiations.

Addressing a gathering here, Agha said the peace negotiators should accelerate their activities.

He alleged the US was interfering in the negotiation process and was trying not to let trust develop between the two sides.

“Our people should know that the US does not want the on-going talks to succeed. They agreed with the Taliban that their prisoners will be released in 10 days but contradictory to their commitment the US told the Afghan government not to free the prisoners.”

He asked the negotiating teams to accelerate their talks and reach an agreement as soon as possible.

He said the Salvation Council planned to organise people for peace by conducting gatherings in all zones of the country.

Akbar Agha said he was trying to develop a team which would monitor the on-going process.

“We will make a grand team and would visit government and the Taliban teams,” he said.

Religious scholar Maulviinfo-icon Mohsin Danish asked all religious groups and parties to refrain from debating sectarian issues.

“Young, old, men and woman all have the responsibility to come around one point which is peace.”

He said if people accepted each other and joined hands, peace was not far and would be ensured nation-wide.

Maulvi Sher Mohammad Adel, head of Balkh Ulemainfo-icon Council, encouraged people to work for peace and discourage conflict.

“The people of Afghanistan like the people of other nations have the right to live in peace.” He hoped social instability and poverty would end if the fighting came to an end.
