KABUL: Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah termed mismanagement as a core reason behind revocation of Doha talks slated for 20-21 April, where he believes it was an opportunity for peace that has been lost.
Addressing the Council of Ministers meeting on Monday, he lamented over Qatar conference interruption, but said the government and people of Afghanistan are ready to use any sorts of opportunity for peace.
After February talks in Moscow, in which Afghan delegation and Taliban negotiation members for the first time after 18-year, had sit on one table to find a peacefully settlement to the Afghan conflict. The talks were widely welcomed. The second such kind of intra-Afghan talks was expected to be held in Doha but revoked after Qatari government and the Taliban member opposed the list arranged by the government.
According to Presidential Palace statement on April 16, the meeting was canceled over the disagreement of Qatari government with the 250-member list. The Taliban insurgent group also mocked the delegation list, saying it is not a weeding party in one of hotels in Kabul.
“Unfortunately, an opportunity which was created for dialogue in Qatar was interrupted due to mismanagement,” Abdullah added.
