Kabul (BNA) The Head of Afghanistan High Peace Council, Mohammad Karim Khalili says President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has assured HPC that no institution and person has responsibility and task to follow peace talks except the country’s high peace council. In sideline of the council’s session, Khalili told media, “Part of HPC works have been followed by other institutions, but they had always facilitating role.”
For example, Khalili recalled of signing peace agreement by national security advisor Mohammad Hanif Atmar with Hekmatyar, adding that Atmar has assured HPC that they were only playing as facilitator of peace talks and it was HPC to have the main responsibility of peace talks.
Although Afghanistan government as an impartial organ has given all authorizations to the respective council, head of the council has said HPC cannot lonely make all peace efforts succeed until national consensus was not created in this regard.
According to head of the council, HPC has held consultation meetings with Hezb-e-Islami, Jamyat-e-Islami, Stability and Protection Council and other political fronts and organizations so peace efforts would be brought under one umbrella that has overall supports.
After completion the council’s new strategy, practical measures have been adopted to resume peace talks. The council begins its practical steps towards peace talks at a time when the new strategy that can open new routes towards Afghan peace and reconciliation process has been just finalized.
Now, if a question is asked regarding war that why war does not end in Afghanistan? Why lasting security, stability and peace is not maintained in Afghanistan? We cannot convince the people of Afghanistan to have simple answers for the respective questions as answers to the questions are perplexed enough. War and peace in Afghanistan do not depend on a single person and organization as the people and government of Afghanistan have been trying to bring peace and stability to the country for the past 15 years. War in Afghanistan has national, regional and international dimensions; therefore, ending and continuing of war are perceivable between the above parameters. All peace efforts and strategies will not succeed until coordination is not created between national, regional and international diplomacies. Therefore, the government in general as official organ should follow peace process through national, regional and international dimensions.
Clear introduction of position and works of high peace council and given all authorizations to the council can resolve part of legal and work problems of the council, but this issue is not enough for bringing peace to the country.
Following better initiatives in battlefields, creating of a powerful government and political consensus in connection with modality of bringing peace and specification of a framework for peace and its borders are some requirements that should be considered by the government in national sector. On the other hand, aggregation of neighbors and regional countries’ legal interests as well as gaining of the international community’s real support from peace process are issues that should be considered by the government in its foreign policies. It is worth mentioning that there are some weaknesses and shortcomings in works of the high peace council, but now it is anticipated that the council by its new strategy will follow peace efforts to bring lasting stability to the country.
