“We are trying to hold a gathering among the Afghans. The tribal elders, and Islamic clerics and influential figures will take part in it. But it is yet to be determined when it will be held. Inshallah, the discussion will cover political, social and security matters,” said Zabiullah Mujahid, the spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.
A senior member of the Islamic Emirate, Anas Haqqani, said he hoped the gathering would conclude with a positive outcome.
“This is the intention of the Islamic Emirate. There is a hope this meeting will (represent the whole nation).,” he said.
The political analysts gave various opinions regarding the meeting.
“The gathering could be beneficial when it is widely formed. The political figures, academics, women and youth must be included in the gathering,” said Sayed Jawad Husseini, a political analyst.
