Sources close to the First Vice President General Abdul Rashid Dostum have said that he will return from Turkey to Kabul on Sunday.

The Chief of Staff of the Office of the First Vice President Enayatullah Babur Farahman confirmed that Gen. Dostum will return based on an agreement reached following days of negotiations.

He said the negotiations between the First Vice President and the government representatives have concluded.

This comes as President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani on Sunday said that Gen. Dostum will likely return from Turkey in the near future.

However, he said the First Vice President of the country has legal cases and expressed hopes that the judicial institutions would take proper decisions in this regard.

Gen. Dostum left for Turkey over a year ago amid heightened tensions and controversies surrounding the kidnapping and sexual abuse of the former Jawzjan governor Ahmad Ishchi.
