KABUL: Welcoming the signing of the peace agreement between the US and the Taliban, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), hoped the pact will pave the way for an intra-Afghan negotiation. According to the statement from the organization, the OIC Secretary General Dr. Yousef Al Othaimeen commended the successful implementation of the reduction of violence period across Afghanistan, and appealed to all parties to work diligently for achieving a permanent ceasefire. The statement said: “Afghan leaders and people have once again demonstrated their capability of ending hostilities and moving towards lasting peace, security and stability to focus their efforts on the reconstruction and development of their country.” He recalled OIC Summit decisions, ministerial resolutions and last year’s Makkah Declaration adopted by International Ulama Conference for Peace and Security in Afghanistan. The secretary general renewed OIC’s readiness to continue working with the government and people of Afghanistan, their neighbors and the international community for durable peace, reconciliation, development and prosperity in Afghanistan and the region.
