A spokesman for the National Coalition said that "adjustment" of the Afghan Constitution is expected to be the main focus of the Paris peace talks, whose organizers have been tight-lipped about details of its agenda.

His comments come as one of the major demands of the Afghan government and international community before a peace agreement has been that the Taliban accept the Constitution as it is and respect its provisions about women's rights.

The Taliban went into the talks insisting adamantly that they would not talk with the government of Afghanistan directly.

On the other hand, Deputy Chair of the Afghan High Peace Council Ataullah Lodin said the Paris talks will have "no positive results."

The Afghan political parties participating in the talks have also expressed diminished optimism.

In this edition of Kankash, host Omid Farooq discusses the topic with the following guests:

• Mohammad Akbari, member of parliament and High Peace Council
• Moeen Marastiyal, member of the Right and Justice Party
• Fazl Rahman Orya, member of the National Coalition Party
