MuslimyarThe Afghan Senate House Speaker Fazal Hadi Muslimyar has said he is not optimistic regarding the peace process brought to us by Pakistan as the Afghan delegation is set to meet with the Taliban representatives in Qatar today.

Muslimyar said he is personally not convinced with the reconciliation process which comes through Pakistan and the main motive behind such efforts are not ascertained.

He suggested that the Afghan government and nation should fight against all those armed groups who are against the nation, political system of the nation and oppose the representatives and leaders of the nation by calling them their enemies.

Muslimyar also added that both the Afghan and Pakistani governments should take practical steps in eliminating those groups who are funded from Pakistan, if both the nations are working together to bring peace and stability in the region.

The remarks by Muslimyar comes as a delegation of the Afghan High Peace Council (AHPC) officials are expected to meet with the representatives of the Taliban group in Qatar today.

Afghan High Peace Council (AHPC) officials said Friday that the Afghan delegation consists of 20 members who will attend the meeting and will have open discussions with Taliban representatives.

Deputy High Peace Council Chief, Ataullah Ludin, quoted in report by Reuters said “The open discussions are based on peace in Afghanistan. There will be representatives from Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Taliban and some other organisations.”

Ludin further added that the meeting will also be attended by two members of Hezb-e-Islami party led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.
