Anas Haqqani, a senior member of the Islamic Emirate’s Qatar office, told the audience in a gathering in the southeastern province of Khost on Wednesday (today) that a clerics’ conference will be held soon, and that problems with girls’ schools would be addressed. The gathering of clergy will resolve the school issue, he stated.

Haqqani, who recently visited Khost, said that attendants have been chosen, including religious clergy, intellectuals, and experts, and that the meeting will take place soon.

Haqqani stated that rather than violence and “bloodshed,” the issue should be resolved through negotiations without addressing or referring a specific group or people.

He said “you will hear good news. It will make everyone happy” following his position on the fact that “many people have been displeased. They have every reason to be disgruntled”.

Haqqani declared the reopening of the girls’ schools in a near future, where other officials of the present Afghan administration attended the meeting in Khost.
