Atta Mohammad Noor, the acting governor of northern Balkh province and an ex-Jihadi commander who has also fought against Taliban, says he does not have issues if Taliban are included in the government.
While talking to reporters in Mazar-i-Sharif, provincial capital of Balkh, Atta Mohammad Noor said that if including Taliban in the government can bring peace to the country, he will welcome the deal.
He says he will not have issues if Taliban are given two or three ministries.
Although, the leaders of the National Unity Government have not acted to the reports of Pakistani media that Taliban want 30 percent share in the government but President Mohammad Ghani and Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah reiterate that they will not take a decision that is not in the best interest of Afghanistan.
The leaders of the national unity government have promised that the first priority in their government is to bring peace to the country.
Last month Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah said that peace talks with Taliban will start soon but according to Reuters news agency differences between two prominent Taliban commanders has delayed the improvements in peace talks.
