Moulana Fazal ur Rehman makes an appeal to Afghan Taliban

ISLAMABAD - Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman, head of Pakistan Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam has called on the Afghan Taliban to enter into peace talks with the Afghan government.

In an interview with Voice of America, Fazal-ur-Rehman said that “it is as important as that with the U.S.”.

“Taliban should hold negotiations with the Afghan government,” he added.

Daudzai, who met Fazl-ul-Rehman on January 9 during his four-day visit to Pakistan, said that he appreciates “a change in stance” of Fazl-ur-Rehman on Afghan peace.

Daudzai’s remarks come amid diplomatic efforts to find a political settlement to the nearly two decades of war in Afghanistan.
