AT-KABU: The National Unity Front and Anti- Foreign Military (NUFAFM) Bases, a cluster of the former mujahideen, said that the Afghan government should search for other ways rather than relying on Pakistan to bring peace back to Afghanistan.
Speaking at a press conference here on Monday, the former jihadists said through mediation of Pakistan peace would not return to the country as Islamabad is pursuing its own interests which are in conflict with Afghan interests.
Wahid Mujhda, a member of the NUFAFM, said that peace never comes through use of force or war. “The NATO and ISAF failed to improve security in Afghanistan during the past 13 years while fighting the Taliban,” he said, adding that Afghan government should learn from mistakes of the US-led NATO.
He said that emergence of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Afghanistan is a pre-planned strategy of some foreign intelligence agencies to impose their agenda on Afghans.
Sufatullah Qani, another member of the front, criticized the National Unity Government while saying that government has no serious intentions to bring peace and stability back to the country.
“Multiple hostile parties were at loggerheads with each other over establishment of the national unity government but why they are unable to convince the Taliban,” he asked.
He said that the National Unity Front is ready to pave the ground for government to resume negotiations with the Taliban but if the authorities truly want to support the peace parleys.
