All stakeholders should be made part of Afghan peace process; Asfandyar
PESHAWAR: President of Awami National Party Asfandyar Wali Khan has urged the regional countries to make Afghanistan as part of the ongoing peace process for achieving lasting and durable goal of peace in the region.
He was talking to high level delegation of Afghanistan headed by former Afghan Interior Minister and Chairman Afghanistan Peace Council Muhammad Umer Daudzai that called on him at his residence Wali Bagh in Charsadda on Wednesday.
Newly posted Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan Atif Mashal and other important dignitaries of Afghan government were present on the occasion.
The delegation conveyed message of good will of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to the ANP Chief Asfandyar Wali Khan.
He said that peace talks cannot succeed sans Afghan’s participation and added that any unilateral agreement with Taliban would make difficult for the regional countries to control Daesh activities in the region.
China and Russia would have to play pivotal role of guarantors in the peace overtures. We wish for success of the peace talks as in case of failure the region may face situation like Syria. The ANP is ready to play its role in Afghan peace talks.
The Afghan delegation lauded the efforts and struggle of the ANP in establishment of peace in their war ravaged country.
The ANP rendered historic and matchless sacrifices for the sake of peace in the region, the Afghan delegates maintained.
