Afghan Hekmatyar-led militant group ready for 'meaningful talks' with Karzai govt.

Kabul, Mon, 16 Jan 2012 ANI

Kabul, Jan 16 (ANI): The leader of Afghanistan's second-biggest insurgent group has said he is ready for 'meaningful talks' with all parties to end the decade-long war.


The statement by Hezb-i-Islami Head Gulbuddin Hekmatyar comes after an announcement by the main insurgent group, the Taliban, that they will open a political office in Qatar ahead of possible talks with the US, the Daily Times reports.


However, former Afghan prime minister, Hekmatyar, said that Hezb-i-Islami had already had enough dialogue with Washington and the government of President Hamid Karzai.


"We held talks with Kabul government as well as with the Americans on different occasions, but did not receive any clear, acceptable and realistic plan from them worth mentioning,"


"The Kabul government is powerless and the Americans have no plan acceptable to the Afghan nation and the mujahedeen. Any negotiations should pave the way for an agreed plan for the unconditional withdrawal of the foreign forces, guaranteeing Afghanistan's independence, Afghans' right to decide their fate and their national integrity," he added.


Karzai's Spokesman Aimal Faizi had said nearly two weeks ago that a delegation representing the group had travelled to Kabul and met the president "in a good atmosphere, and the results were good". (ANI)
