In his speech during the ceremony to mark the start of the new Solar Year, Nowruz, Noor said certain agreements have been made during the talks with the government.
Noor further added that talks are underway and a final agreement will be made in coming days.
He said the details regarding the agreement will be shared with the people once the agreement concludes with the government.
This comes as sources in Balkh had earlier said that the government and Jamiat-e-Islami have reached to an agreement to end the stalemate over Balkh political administration.
Sources privy of the development have said that the government and Jamiat-e-Islami have reached to an agreement and the new governor for Balkh province will be introduced in the near future.
The Office of the President, ARG Palace, announced over three months ago that President Ghani has approved the resignation of the Balkh governor Ata Mohammad Noor.
Noor admits had submitted his resignation as a guarantee to the government that he will step down if the demands of Jamiat-e-Islami are met by the government.
However, he says the government has approved his resignation as negotiations were underway insisting that none of the conditions and demands of the party have been met.
