Mullah Rasoul's group welcome Ulema Conference in Indonesia

Mullah Rasoul's group welcome Ulema Conference in Indonesia

Mar 18, 2018 - 16:02

KABUL (Pajhwok): The Taliban’s splinter group led by Mullah Rasoul has declared its support for Ulema conference in Indonesia on Afghan peace process later this month, a statement from the group said on Sunday.

The establishment of peace was only possible through the mediation of Ulema and religious scholars, the statement said.

The Mullah Rasoul’s groups thanked the Indonesian government for arranging and hosting meeting on Afghan peace process.

The statement slammed the Habbatullah led Taliban for rejecting the conference and regarded their decision inaccurate and illegal.

The mainstream Taliban leader Mullah Hibatullah, had earlier rejected the upcoming peace conference of religious scholars in Jakarta.

“Afghan nation lived in hardship, poverty and peace is possible in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of foreign troops,” the Taliban statement said.

Indonesian president during his visit to Kabul had offered to host a global conference in which Ulema from Afghanistan and Pakistan would take part. Pakistan government has not yet state about the conference.

Mulvi Abdul Rahman Niazai, member of the High Peace Council (HPC), said they welcomed any meeting, cooperation for settlement or facilitating the withdrawal of foreign troops.

He said Afghans suffered too much due to decade long conflict and rendered huge sacrifices.
