Islamic Republic of Afghanistan seeking end to decades of deleterious war in Afghanistan through peace talks in Qatar. Afghanistan government and Taliban began historic peace talks in Qatar on Saturday morning, 12 September 2020 to find a middle ground that would put an end to the deadly conflict. The aim of negotiations is to terminate the deep political divisions, decades of tear and blood, and loss and grievances. Abdullah Abdullah, the Chairman of Afghanistan’s High Council of National Reconciliation and the leader of peace delegation from the Government of Afghanistan emphasises that “We have come here with the good will and good intention to stop the 40 years of bloodshed and achieve a countrywide and lasting peace,”. He also stated at opening ceremony that “The current conflict has no winner though war and military means, but there will be no loser if this crisis is resolved politically and peacefully through submission to the will of the people.” Afghan delegation expresses their priority as lasting cease-fire. The negotiations are still under process, and both sides are seeking an end to a decade of violence; The government of Afghanistan is actively engaging in the peace process and enthusiastically embracing peace. Releasing thousands of Taliban prisoners, particularly 6 high-value prisoners from Afghan custody can be counted as a positive step and true intention of Afghan government to embrace peace. however, Afghan delegation is firmly standing to protect the values of people of Afghanistan, such as respecting the women and minority rights, freedom of expression and respecting other ethnic and religious groups in Afghanistan.
