Afghanistan expects regional support for Intra-Afghan dialogue: MoFA

KABUL: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) on Thursday objected to Moscow’s proposed talks on Afghanistan said that any talks for peace should be carried out under the leadership of the Afghan government and the people. 
In a statement issued on Thursday, MoFAs said that although it appreciates the efforts by Russia for peace in Afghanistan, it stated that the Afghan government expects its regional and international partners to pave the way for intra-Afghan dialogue. 
“Afghanistan will not attend a meeting where there is no commitment by the Taliban to enter direct talks with the government. The government would attend talks with Taliban at any location but that these would have to be direct talks,” MoFA’s statement read. 
According to the statement, the Taliban has defied the goodwill gesture of the Afghan government for peace and stated that participation of the group at the Moscow talks would not hold any importance while it rejects regional and international principles for peace.
