After the disclosure of United States and Taliban secret talks over the formation of Taliban’s political office in Qatar, the National Coalition of Afghanistan support this action and urged that these talks should be led by Afghans.
Dr. Abdullah Abdullah, leader of the National Coalition of Afghanistan said, “The National Coalition of Afghanistan will never attend the peace talks with opposition or any other summit regarding Afghanistan, if these meetings held outside Afghanistan”.
For peace talks, Taliban have to declare their readiness for dialogue with the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan first and then introduce their representatives for this process, Dr. Abdullah Abdullah added.
However, it is said that United States and Germany have taken the initial steps toward peace talks with armed insurgents but the National Coalition of Afghanistan won’t accept any secret deal in this process.
Although, it is not clear yet that whether the Afghan government will lead the peace talks or not but some concerns have raised about the possible motives behind the peace talks with armed opposition.
