Moscow-1_tcm277-2369440Russia hosts an apparently important regional security conference on Afghanistan tomorrow, to address growing security challenges in the country.

The meeting would host various neighboring countries, including, Pakistan, India, and Iran.

Afghanistan would also participate in the conference with the hope the countries like Pakistan and recently Russia, should distinguish among bad and good terrorists.

“We have reviewed the problems face Afghanistan. We look forward of U.S. to participate in the meeting.” Sergei Lavrov, Russian foreign secretary told the press.

Afghanistan hopes the participants of the summit may announce the governments should stop supporting Afghan anti-government armed militias.

The cooperation must be inter-state and the participants must send a clear massage against the insurgent groups.

“No terrorist groups favor the interests of any country. Therefore, the countries should practically act against the strongholds of the insurgents.” Shekib Mustaghni, MOFA spokesperson said.

While Moscow conference on Afghanistan is deemed to find a solution for the current conflicts in the country, but experts believe unless U.S-Russia may reach to an agreement on Afghanistan, battle would not end any time soon.

Both the Taliban team and the government are negotiating on how to verify and release the prisoners, as well as obtaining guarantees of not returning to the war, Arg said.

An agreement on peace between the Taliban and the government has not yet been reached, but the US-Taliban peace agreement which was signed three months ago in Doha, Qatar says that the Afghan government should release 5,000 Taliban prisoners in exchange for 1,000 prisoners from the Taliban side.

A Taliban delegation is now in Kabul negotiating the prisoners’ release.

However, the Taliban has said that the team was in Kabul only to monitor the release of prisoners and has no further authority over other aspects of the peace process.

The Afghan government and the Taliban in their latest actions came to an agreement about a three-day ceasefire on the occasion of Eid ul-Fitr.

The Afghan government is now urging the Taliban to take new and more practical steps in the process of starting Intra-Afghan negotiations.

Arg said that the government’s negotiating team was ready and that the government was committed to take new measures.

Sediq Sediqqi, the presidential spokesman said that the Afghan government had taken major steps towards peace and it was time for the Taliban to show the green light.

Sources close to the Taliban said that the unannounced ceasefire by the group is ongoing, but they will not start the Intra-Afghan negotiations until thousands of the Taliban prisoners are released.

The United States and the international community are waiting for the Afghan government and the Taliban to begin the first round of Intra-Afghan Talks, as the start of these talks could open new doors to the Afghan peace process.
