Abdullah: Afghan Government & Political Parties Have Common Responsibility in Defending the System

Chief Executive Abdullah on Monday said that the government and political parties have a common responsibility in defending the Afghan political system.

Speaking at the Council of Ministers meeting on Monday, Abdullah said, “some of the efforts are focused on Intra-Afghan talks. Afghan government and political parties have a common responsibility in defending the system”.

He added, that defending the system does not mean defending particular positions, but the goal is to defend the whole system.

The chief executive stressed that the Islamic and republic character of government and transition of power through election are the principles that can never be compromised.

He elaborated that “Everyone wants peace, but in the absence of some principles, peace does not find any meaning, and one of these principles is election and the power delivery through it and political parties have different views, but in this respect, we should all agree with each other.”

Dr Abdullah said in defending the system there is no disagreement between political parties and personalities of the country and Taliban must know that “we are familiar with their propaganda and various ways of their working” emphasizing that these methods are no longer applicable. Therefore, the Taliban should honestly cooperate.

He further stated that when peace is accomplished, there is no need for the existence of international forces in Afghanistan, but cooperation with the international community would continue.
