President Ghani considered the last moment of 2015 year the bloodiest time for Afghan people; however he announced about the restart of peace talks in presence of US, China and Pakistan.
Ghani has also announced about quartert meeting between Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and America.
“The first round of a quadrilateral meeting between senior officials from Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and the US that will lay a roadmap for peace negotiations, is set to be held on January 11 in Islamabad. The second round of the meeting will be convened in Kabul afterwards,” Ghani said.
The first round of face-to-face talks between Taliban and the Afghan government was held in Pakistan in July but the second round was cancelled after news of the death of the Taliban leader, Mullah Omar, was revealed, Xinhua news agency reported.
The announcement came four days after President Ghani met with Pakistan’s Army Chief General Raheel Sharif in Kabul and the two countries agreed to take action against those armed groups refusing to join the peace process.
One of the former members of Taliban group expressed optimism about this process.
