President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani met with Ata Mohammad Noor, the Chief Executive of Jamiat-e Islami and Mahmud Karzai, the brother of the former President Hamid Karzai.

In a statement posted online, Noor said the meeting focused on current situation of the country, announcement of election results, peace process, establishment of an inclusive government and reduction in violence.

Noor further added that he does not support crisis and violence in the country, emphasizing that violence will negatively impact the ongoing efforts for peace in Afghanistan.

The meeting between Noor, Ghani and Mahmud Karzai takes place amid controversies surrounding the announcement of election results and its effects on peace process.

The Chief Executive of the Unity Government Abdullah rejected the announcement of the election results, vowing that he would establish a parallel government, insisting that last year’s elections were marred by massive fraud.

The Taliban group which is observing a week-long reduction in violence, aimed at concluding a peace deal with Taliban, had earlier rejected the election results and warned that the orchestrated and fraudulent elections could affect the peace efforts.
