The Hezb-e Islami leader, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar has expressed objection and concern over the distribution of arms and weapons to the oppositions of the government in Northern parts of the country.

“We have objection over distribution of weapons in Northern parts. As I have concern, all people in north have the same concern and the government has specified information about this issue,” said Gulbuddin Hekmatyar during a press conference in Kabul.

However, the government officials rejected the supply of weapons to Taliban in Northern parts of Afghanistan.

Gulbuddin Hekmatyar further added that he has not given any commitment about supporting the National Unity Government (NUG), but emphasized Hezb-e Islami will assist the government for providing peace with the armed oppositions.

“We have not supported the National Unity Government and will not. We have not guaranteed to support the NUG. We support the process of ending war and we surly support the government in this term,” Hekmatyar said.

Regarding the recent coalition made between political parties of Afghanistan, Hekmatyar said, “I do not have any concern or opposition to the formation of the recent coalition, but they should choose a good target.”

On the subject of more foreign troops in Afghanistan, he noted that he believes deploy of more troops will not solve any problem but it will be problematic too.

President Ghani inked peace deal with Gulbuddin Hekmatyar in first peace treaty since the war with the Taliban began in 2001.
