KABUL (Pajhwok): In the Kohi Safi district of central Parwan province, police have seized 20 rockets set to be fired into Kabul.

Maj. Alozai Ahmadi, head of the security coordination centre, told Pajhwok Afghan News the rockets were recovered from Jozak Mountain Monday night.

He said militants wanted to disrupt the Kabul Process Conference being held in the capital today by firing these rockets into the city.

High-level delegations from Central Asia and Gulf states, Russia, China, India, Pakistan, the US, Australia, UN and European Union (EU) are taking part in the event.

Earlier, deputy presidential spokesman Shah Hussain Murtazvi said the Kabul Process was aimed at developing a strategy for peace and stability in Afghanistan.
