Kabul (BNA) Afghanistan National Security Advisor Hamdullah Mohib attended and addressed a six-nation meeting on Afghanistan and regional security situation in Ufa, Russia here the other day, a statement from NSA office said yesterday.
Afghanistan, Russia, China, India, Iran and Pakistan representatives were present on the occasion.
Addressing the meeting, NSA has said the Taliban show no sign of willingness to peace and reconciliation in the country, according to the statement.
Meanwhile NSA Mohib demanded a formal contact with the government of Afghanistan instead of other groups.  This was welcomed by the participating members, the statement added.
NSA Mohib said the people of Afghanistan rendered sacrifices in the war against terrorism on behalf of the region and international community and demanded the recognition of these sacrifices on regional and global levels.  He added the president of Afghanistan took unprecedented steps for the establishment of peace and reconciliation and the convention of Peace Jirga was one of these efforts.
NSA said the Afghan government was committed to implementing the demands raised during the Loya Jirga and added the released of Taliban prisoners was one of their demands.
Unfortunately, the Taliban showed no interest to reciprocate these efforts for peace and reconciliation, he said.
