He stressed that political leaders should cooperate and help each other to represent Islamic Republic and demands of people for peace talks.

Stressing on formation of an inclusive representatives on peace talks he added that: “The principle of determining people’s destiny by people themselves is the key element in the peace talks.”

Abdullah Abdullah added, “If we tie peace and elections together, we may not be able to achieve both goals, so it’s very important to concentrate on both while separately considering their time and avoiding time wastage.”

He urged all government institutions to cooperate with election commissions in order to have free and fair elections, and that the platform be paved for all candidates in order to guarantee the fairness of elections and the use of government facilities.

The Chief Executive added that no changes were made to the level of cooperation between the security institutions and Resolute Support Mission, and NATO is committed to continued support for Afghanistan.
