KABUL: The role of women throughout the Afghan peace process with the Taliban has been so far significant. There have been three rounds of intra-Afghan talks conducted between the Afghan political elites and the Taliban delegation. Two of them were in Moscow and the third one in Doha, where women were part of all these intra-Afghan dialogues and negotiations and played a considerable role in terms of raising their voice and speaking for the women of Afghanistan.
Former President Hamid Karzai on Monday during meeting with the ambassadors of the Great Britain, Japan, Sweden and Finland as well as the UN envoy in Afghanistan, said he strongly believes in Afghan women’s participation in peace talks and other matters of the country.
