A participatory government to end the long devastative conflict is reportedly under discussion between the peace brokers.
The US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad during his recent meetings with the Afghan political leaders spoke about the next steps for the peace process in the country.
According to reports, Dr. Khalilzad during his meeting with the country’s politicians, including the President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, Dr. Abdullah Abdullah, the chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation, and former-president Hamid Karzai handed them a draft for peace expectedly leading to the formation of a participatory system with the Taliban group.
A statement from The Presidential Office also reported about Khalilzad meeting with the country’s president, in which both sides discussed peace process.
In the meeting, the US Special Representative for the Afghan Reconciliation, expressed pleasure over a national consensus and international diplomacy for the peace process and assured the US role in the restoration of peace in the country.
Some media said that a Bonn conference-style meeting will be held at the international level to talk about the formation and the prospect of a participatory system with the Taliban to permanently put an end to war in the country.
The envoy also reportedly met with Abdullah Abdullah, chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation, in discussing the review of the Doha agreement.
Both sides talked about a reviewed Doha peace agreement, following the new US administration, reduction in violence and how to achieve lasting peace in the country.
Media, also, citing ex-president Hamid Karzai’s office said that both the republic side and the Taliban group would attend the leadership, following the formation of the participatory government, the prospect of which would planned through a meeting similar to the Bonn Conference.
Both; the people and the government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan want a real peace restored to end the long bloodshed and the erosive wars in the country. But a system out of republic, will never represent the main goal of the people, as nothing has been seen in the past from the so-called Islamic Emirate, except backwardness and underdevelopment.
In case of formation of a participatory government, there is a need for the international community, particularly the US as the key stakeholder in Afghanistan issue as well as the regional countries to guarantee the implementation of the most important condition and obligatory options that the country will not return to terrorists sanctuary and that the rights of the entire Afghans, including women and girls are protected.
Although, the US’s new administration is yet to announce the mostly likely fruitful review about the Afghan peace process, but any possible effective system expected to end war and the ongoing worse situation, should guarantee that the last nearly two decades of achievements in various fields are preserved.
Any new system should be based on the will of the Afghans not at the demand of those internal or external malicious circles that led the country towards devastation and the death of thousands of innocent Afghans.
