Leader of the Hezb-e-Islami, Islamic Party of Afghanistan Gulbuddin Hekmatyar said, secret peace talks between Washington and the Taliban group outside of Afghanistan will not have a positive impact.

British Broadcasting Corporation following its latest report stated Gulbuddin Hekmatyar has answered to a number of questions of BBC, which was presented to him by the spokesman of Hezb-e-Islami Haroon Zarghoon who is currently residing in Islamabad.

Gulbuddin Hekmatyar has said he was proposed to a open a liaison office in a foreign country but he denied the offer. Mr. Hekmatyar emphasized that they not want Hezb-e-Islami to be in exile by accepting an offer to open office outsie of Afghanistan.

In a response to a question of BBC in regards to efforts by Hezb-e-Islami for coordinating the Taliban group and other militant groups fighting the Afghan government and coalition security forces, he said, Hezb-e-Islami continously struggled to unite the mujahideens to have a united plan both for war and peace talks and for the future of Afghanistan, but unfortunately Hezb-e-Islami failed to do so due to domestic and foreign intereferences.

In parts of his speech pointing towards indepdendent peace negotiations of militants groups with the United States of America he said, I urge to prevent independent peace talks by each militants groups with the coalition security forces in abid to prevent previous mistakes. We should prevent secret conspiracies and should not depend on foreigners and strangers. Such conditions and situation should be created which should pave the way for unconditional withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan. A government should be formed with the support of the Afghans after achieving freedom.

Leader of Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin Hekmatyar also believe that a government with the support of the United States of America will not last longer once US troops leave Afghanistan.

He said, Washington will not be able to guarantee the future of the government formed by them in Afghanistan as the Soviet Union failed to form a communist government.

In response to feedback of United States regarding the visit of Hezb-e-Islami’s delegation visit to Kabul he said, the delegation met with the Gen. David Petraeus Director, Central Intelligence Agency and Afghan president Hamid Karzai, but Mr. Hekmatyar emphasized that neither Washington nor the Afghan government have specific plans for peace talks and ending war in Afghanistan.
