HAMGAM BA ROYDADHA: Afghan Govt Will Not Attend Moscow Conference
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) on Wednesday said the Afghan government will not participate in the peace meeting on Afghanistan in the Russian capital Moscow next month. The ministry said government firmly believes in intra-Afghan dialogue.
According to officials, the Kabul government has not received a formal invitation to attend the talks so far.
“Any regional consensus about Pakistan needs to be structured in axis of the Afghan government. The peace process definitely needs to be carried out under the leadership of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. We will not participate in the Moscow talks,” said MoFA deputy spokesman Sibghat Ahmadi.
However, a former Taliban political figure Sayed Akbar Agha said Taliban will attend the meeting and will start discussions on the prospects of peace in Afghanistan with countries in the region.
