President Ghani’s Special Envoy Daudzai Fights To Conduct The Peace Consultative Jirga

April 29, 2019, will observe a peace consultative Jirga as a part of efforts towards Intra-Afghan dialogue, as stated by the President Ghani Special Envoy Umer Daudzai. The Taliban has already condemned the Jirga and among others, Chief Executive Dr. Abdullah Abdullah is in opposition to it.

Although, there are efforts going on to bring Dr. Abdullah in support of the Jirga. According to Daudzai, the Consultative Jirga on Peace is not aimed at election campaign and that it is held to discuss issues around the peace process in Afghanistan.

Replying to the grand opposition towards the jirga, including the ex-president Hamid Karzai, Daudzai reasoned that Jirgas in Afghanistan have often faced opposition. Aimed at identifying the red lines for peace talks with the Taliban, Daudzai said that the regional nations are also optimistic about the expected results of the jirga.
