Afghanistan’s National Security Council (NSC) says that it is necessary to first discuss the end of war and violence in Afghanistan, not the type of the system. According to the NSC, the Taliban are responsible for bloodshed in the country before commenting on the mechanism of the system.
“If the Taliban change during the political activities, the way to join the republic will be paved for them; but the debate on the type of the system is ahead of time,” tweeted Rahmatullah Andar, a spokesman for the NSC.
According to him, now, the debate about the type of the system is somewhat ahead of time. In the current situation, Afghans are expecting the hot war to end.
“The republic means that any form of political structures can be part of it. If the Taliban becomes a political stream, instead of war and terrorist gangs, it is natural that they can be included under the umbrella of the republic,” he added.
The remarks come as a Taliban delegation led by the deputy leader of the Taliban Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar traveled to Iran to consult on the Afghan peace process.
“We are negotiating with all Afghans in Doha, we hope to reach an agreement on an inclusive Afghan system that is acceptable to all Afghans, we are not seeking a monopoly of power,” said Suhail Shaheen, a member of the Taliban delegation.
Meanwhile, National Security Adviser Hamdullah Mohib said that an interim government means a permanent opportunity for foreign interventions.
