Pakistan unwilling to help Afghan peace bid: Khpalwak

Pakistan unwilling to help Afghan peace bid: Khpalwak

Oct 30, 2017 - 18:05

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): High Peace Council (HPC) secretary Akram Khpalwak on Monday said all regional and international partners, except Pakistan, had assured Afghanistan their full support for its peace and stability.

Addressing a gathering of tribal elders to collect their views on how to maintain peace and stability in eastern Nangarhar province, Khpalwak said there was need for country-wide calls for peace, a process started from Nangarhar.

He told the event in Jalalabad, the provincial capital, that without Pakistan, all regional countries had promised support to the Afghan peace and reconciliation process.

The US in its new strategy and the European Union (EU) have announced their support for the Afghan peace process.

Khapawak said the Afghan government was striving to reach a peace deal with the Taliban because many illegal activities were being conducted in their name. “If this platform is disorganized, then peace will be difficult to restore.”

Another HPC member Azizullah Haji Din Mohammad said today’s gathering sent a message to the people to collect their viewpoints regarding peace and then submit them to the HPC.

Governor Gulab Mangal demanded expansion of the provincial peace committee to accelerate its peace efforts in the province. He said over 900 rebels had joined the peace process in the province so far.
