“In all countries, war and peace are issues on which all peoples, particularly influential political movements, must decide on. Legitimacy and success of both are contingent on national consensus,” the party said in a statement.
The statement further added that “Unilateral decisions on such matters by a select group in the NUG means ignoring the will of the people and will not result in a tangible outcome.”
This comes as the Taliban group has so far refrained to respond positively to the ongoing peace efforts despite the Afghan government extended the ceasefire originally declared from 27th of Ramadan to 5th day of Eid.
In the meantime, President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has said that certain developments have been made in the ongoing peace efforts with the Taliban group.
Speaking to a gathering of people in Nangarhar province, President Ghani said developments have been made in peace sector as he expressed hopes regarding the return of a lasting peace in the country.
He did not disclose further information in this regard but emphasized that one of his main duties is to ensure the end of war in Afghanistan.
President Ghani once again reiterated the government’s stance regarding the ceasefire and said he is prepared for further ceasefire with the Taliban group.
