President Ghani Meets Loya Jirga Delegates

On Saturday, the presidential palace announced that President Ghani met with the delegates of Loya Jirga from Faryab, Jawzjan, Sar-e-Pul and Samangan provinces

President Ghani expressed to the delegates that “if we want peace then we must stop the culture of bullying”.

The Loya Jirga on Peace concluded on Friday with a 13 point resolution and demanded a permanent ceasefire from Taliban starting Ramadan. However, despite the international community appreciating the efforts of Loya Jirga, many opposition politicians were not happy with the conduction.

Moreover, Taliban responded and rejected the offer of ceasefire, to which US Special Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad reacted saying “All sides laying down arms is the outcome of any peace process. All sides agreeing to reduce violence is a necessary step toward achieving that outcome and the morally responsible choice to make. We stand ready”.
