KABUL: Member of Afghan peace negotiator, Nader Nadery says that the new plan “about the future government” proposed by the US is currently under scrutiny.
US Peace Envoy to Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad during his visit to Kabul last week, had discussed participatory government with Afghan leaders, including President Ashraf Ghani.
Speaking in the Afghan Institute for Strategic Studies (AISS), Mr. Nadery on Sunday said that Afghan negotiating team is united and will do all to protect achievements gained in the last 20 years.
This plan is one of the several options for ending the war and establishing peace in the country, Mr. Nadery added. “We have seen the transitional government plan. It’s one of the few options that needs to be addressed.”
Nadery says the peace process needed accuracy and great care. “The US has its own priorities and the Afghans have their own in both – the war and the peace process, therefore the Afghans need to resolve their problems by themselves. We should not wait for others to come and solve it for us,” Mr. Nadery added.
He said that no serious talks have been held with Taliban sides. The talks between Afghan-Taliban peace negotiators have not resumed seriously and genuinely, Mr. Nadery added.
The talks had been stalled for nearly two months.
