The former intelligence chief also added that his message to Stanikzai and President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani is that the party is not against the current system and government in power.
Nabil went on say that the people of Afghanistan have given more sacrifices for the establishment of the government and the activities of the Mehwar party is to help return the legitimacy of the system.
He also suggested that the government should focus on hatching conspiracies against the enemies of the country rather than working against those who are operating against the enemies of Afghanistan.
