KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Afghan Millat political party, led by Abdul Qayum Arif, on Sunday welcomed peace talks between the government and the Gulbadin Hekmatyar-led Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon.

The govt-HIA talks have been ongoing over the past few weeks in Kabul and it is said Hikmatyar would come soon to Kabul for signing a peace agreement with the government.   

A statement from the Millat party said it had helped and supported efforts at bringing peace and stability to Afghanistan.  The party welcomed the HIA for joining the peace process.

It said the HIA’s earlier role in politics and war was well-known, but it had been recently kept away from politics and its reconciliation would leave positive impact on peace in Afghanistan, the statement added.   

President Ghani was committed to giving the peace process a priority and no party would be deprived of their political right, it added. The Millat party believed the reconciliation would encourage other insurgent groups to reconcile and compete in a democratic way.
