KABUL: Some influential political elites have accused President Ashraf Ghani of making obstacle against the Afghan peace process.
“Ghani wants to forcedly engage in peace talks, he should not oppose the resumption of these negotiations,” said Saleh Mohammad Regestani a member of a political party “Hezb-e-Jamiat”.
But Ghani’s Spokesman, Sediq Sediqi said that after consultations with all domestic aspects, a delegation would be formed to hold direct talks with the Taliban.
In the wake of long journey of Afghan peace process, there are still great concerns over disagreement between the government and political movement in the country for the appointment of peace talks’ delegation.
Head of the Hezb-e- Assas Naw-e- Afghanistan, Ahmadullah Alizai said the government has not consulted with the political parties on the aspects but efforts were underway to form an inclusive delegation.
This comes as so many intra-Afghan talks have been cancelled or postponed due to lack of formation of an inclusive delegation by the government. Recently the US and European Union urged the government and political figures to pay serious focus regarding peace talks with the Taliban.
