New developments reported over Afghanistan peace talks in China
*KABUL - The Afghan government will send a delegation to Beijing on Friday to attend at the intra-Afghan peace conference.*
A source told Ariana News that the Presidential Palace has not disclosed details of its delegation in order to avoid opposition from Afghan politicians.
On Monday, a number of politicians called on government to publicize the names of the delagates who are part of the delegation to Beijing.
“If we can’t form a national political consensus among government leaders, political parties, civil society organizations and the National Assembly, we won’t be able to have a single strong position in the negotiation table,” said Qayoum Sajadi, a lawmaker from Ghazni province.
“The government has held consultations with political parties and other stakeholders to form an inclusive negotiating team,” said Waqif Hakimi, another lawmaker from Badakhshan province.
