It was agreed upon that Afghanistan shall not be witness of another war and its only an intra Afghan agreement like this that would bring a solution.

Firstly, unconditional release of elders, disabled and sick inmates shall happen.
Secondly, security of public institutions shall be ensured.
Thirdly, educational institution like schools and universities shall be respected.
Fourthly, dignity of people, their life and property shall be respected ans civilian casualties shall be minimised to zero.

The negotiations also conceded that women’s rights in political, social, economic, educational, and cultural affairs “within Islamic framework” shall be assured.

A roadmap for peace was ensured based on several conditions like: institutionalisation of Islamic system, commencing peace process simultaneously with accomplishment of all terms set forth, monitoring peace agreement, reforming and preserving fundamental institutions that belong to Afghans, repartition of immigrants and return of IDPs, support and assistance from donor countries, assurance of Afghan peace in international conferences, and assurances of zero interference from neighbouring and regional countries in Afghanistan.
