KABUL: Addressing a conference on peace in Kabul, Chief Executive Dr. Abdullah Abdullah said the Afghans had long been yearning for peace with honor and living in stability, a statement said “If we cannot convert our voice into a single voice inside Afghanistan… then we reserve no right to blame others. We must develop a responsible attitude,” the CE said. He cited that there was a good opportunity for peace which must be seized. Referring to Taliban’s proposal for talks, he said: “When they say they believe in peace and we are in favor of a peaceful solution. They view the presence of international forces the only problem.”
The CE added: “They should honor a ceasefire agreement. If the Taliban say they want truce with NATO but not with the Afghan government, this is not possible.” According to Dr. Abdullah, there is a time for talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government. Serious negotiations should begin, he stressed. About talks between the US and Taliban, Abdullah said it was time for the Afghans to decide their fate themselves. He supported the initiative to arrange such conferences about the peace process and promised to work honestly for lasting peace in the country.
