The leader of Jamiat Ulema-e-islam-Sami (JUI-S) Maulana Hamidullah Haq has urged the Taliban group to show flexibility in inclusion of Afghan government in peace talks.

In his speech during a gathering on Monday, Maulana Hamidul Haq said that talks were the only solution to restore peace to the war-torn country, according to the local media reports.

This comes as efforts are underway to start direct talks between the Afghan government and Taliban group in a bid to end the 17-year-long war and violence in the country.

Maulana Fazal Ur Rehman, the President of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazal had earlier promised to support an Afghan-led peace process to end the violence in Afghanistan.

He made the commitment during a meeting with Mohammad Umer Daudzai, the Secretariat Chief of the Afghan High Peace Council and Senior Presidential Envoy for Regional Consensus for Reconciliation earlier this month.
