Hoot 2, 1390,

Following the successful visit from the 27 till 29 of 1390 to Islamabad capital of Pakistan and considering the continuation of peace process of Afghanistan, President Hamid  Karzai has issued the following statement:

-while peace is considered as  vital need of and the aspiration of the people of Afghanistan, the government of Afghanistan shall continue its efforts towards implementation of the peace and reconciliation as its most important priority.

- The peace process started at our initiative requires massive participation of all segments of Afghan nation which has been defined at the peace Jirgah of Saratan of 1389 and at the Traditional Loya Jirgah of Aqrab 1390 HS.

- While the ownership of the peace process is related to the people of Afghanistan and will be led by the Afghan government, the success of this process necessitates honest support of the international community.

- In this respect, we expressed our agreement on perception of creation of an office for the Taliban in Qatar.

-Meanwhile, in order to realize the peace process, I invite the Taliban leadership to start direct talks with the government of Afghanistan.

-To reach this objective, representing the people and the government of Afghanistan I appreciate the brother nation of Pakistan for her support towards peace and reconciliation of Afghanistan and while I am emphasizing on the importance of Pakistan support of this process, here by I ask the brother government of Pakistan to support our efforts for direct talks as part of the peace process and facilitate it.

-The support of Pakistan is determinant in success of peace and she can achieve a significant role in ensuring of security and stability of Afghanistan and the region.

- I once again emphasize that the peace process in reality will ensure return home of all Afghans, including the Taliban who remained outside the political framework, and can facilitate their peaceful life in their country and this of course is the most reliable way for peace and stability in Afghanistan.

- This process also guarantees restoration of the rights of all Afghans in a secure atmosphere in their common home in accordance with the provision of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
