According to the statement, at the meeting, Afghan National Security Advisor Hamdullah Mohib described Afghanistan’s vision toward peace, security and regional cooperation.
During the meeting, Mohib asked the regional countries to discuss issues with the Afghan government instead of holding talks with different groups and the suggestion was welcomed by the participants, the statement said.
In addition, Mohib said that President Ashraf Ghani took unprecedented actions for peace including holding a consultative Loya Jirga on peace and releasing of Taliban’s prisoners while Taliban has not shown any positive move as a good gesture.
