In a joint seven-article statement published today, both Afghan and the delegation of Taliban agreed that the Afghan misery does not have militarily solution but a peaceful and political one.

Afghan delegation led by former vice president Younus Qanuni and the Taliban delegation led by the group’s negotiating team in Doha met in the Iranian capital Tehran.

The intra-afghan guests expressed their gratitude to the hospitality of Iran and applauded its efforts in establishing peace in Afghanistan.

The visiting delegation to Tehran too agreed upon another meet to be held on the issues which need further and elaborate negotiations namely the Islamic system and establishing mechanism for reconciliation.

The Afghan and Taliban delegation strongly denounced attacks causing demolition of residences, schools, masjids and hospitals and targeting civilian people. They unanimously agreed that the culprits destroying facilities of social services should be punished.

The Tehran get-together was too considered rather fruitful and effective and was dubbed as an opportunity for peaceful settlement in Afghanistan.

Iran now became third country after Qatar and Russia hosting warring sides from Afghanistan to talk over reconciliation in the war-torn nation.
