Afghan High Peace Council says they disagree with some of the articles of reconciliation plan presented by Hizb-e-Islami (HIA) group.
Muhammad Ismail Qasimyar, council’s international affairs adviser, said repeal of the parliament and establishment of a new interim government were among the proposals of the HIA group regarding which the Afghan Peace Council has sent their written response to Hizb-e-Islami group.
He said although the dialogue was carried in a mutual trustful environment with the staff members of Hizb-e-Islami but the Peace Council opposes with some of the articles of HIA reconciliation plan which were contrary to the Afghan Law.
After a careful review of the plans and proposals, the negotiations between the both sides would likely be resumed in near future, he added.
This official of Peace Council says the trend of peace talks with the Taliban is continuing with the cooperation of some Islamic countries. Saudi Arabia, Turkey and UAE were trying to strengthen the peace dialogue with the armed oppositions, he stated.
Last week a six-member delegation of Hizb-e-Islami group had visited Kabul — presented a 17-article reconciliation plan to the Afghan Peace Council. The HIA delegation also visited President Karzai, the Vice Presidents and other High-ranking government officials.
