Kabul: The former president of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, in a phone conversation with the US Special Representative for Afghanistan, Thomas West, addressed the need for dialogue among Afghans in the current situation.
Karzai tweeted that they talked about the continuation of humanitarian aid from the US, and stressed on reopening of girls schools above grade.
“In this conversation, in addition to the current situation of the country, there was an exchange of views on the state of the economy, establishing lasting peace and stability and the urgent need for a genuine national dialogue among Afghans,” Karzai tweeted.
“They talked about the current situation of the economy and about reopening schools for girls, peace and stability in the country, and the need for negotiation among Afghans,” said Shahzada Massoud, a political analyst.
The US special envoy said that girls were deprived of their basic right to education, which is holding Afghanistan backward.
“International community will continue to roll up sleeves and address humanitarian and basic needs. Need the Taliban to do their part, reduce aid interference, and govern in ways that invite investment and return of Afghan educated cadres.” said Thomas West.
“The Taliban must move in such a way that such oppositions in the country become silenced,” said Sayed Akbar Agha, a political analyst.
Earlier, the Islamic Emirate in reaction to demands of political figures and foreign nations said the time for a national dialogue among Afghans is over.
