The final round of talks between Jamiat-e-Islami party of Afghanistan and the presidential palace (ARG) have hit another deadlock as negotiators from the two sides failed to reach consensus on some key issues that appear to have prolonged the weeks long stalemate.
The two sides have still not reached an agreement over some core points related to a constitutional Loya Jirga, the rolling out of electronic identity cards and equal share for political parties in the elections, officials of Jamiat leadership council said on Sunday.
Afghanistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) on Sunday said Pakistan’s policies on the issue of terrorist hideouts, financiers and safe havens remains vague and that no progress has been made in talks between the Afghan delegation and Pakistan in Islamabad.
“We did not see any action from Pakistani authorities; No progress has been made in specific, practical, results-oriented and time-based actions. There is no agreement to continue working on a Joint Action Plan,” said MoFA spokesman Ahmad Shekib Mustaghni.
