Abdullah Abdullah, the chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation, says no one can achieve power with the targeted assassinations of human rights activists, the journalists and civilians.

According to him, if the Taliban thinks that by killing innocent people and human rights activists, they are showcasing capabilities, it is a miscalculation and makes it difficult to reach peace peacefully.
The chairman of HCNR stressed that targeting innocent people is rejected in every principles.
Dr. Abdullah called the establishment of the Human Rights Commission a serious need to coordinate with other human rights institutions and stressed that Afghanistan is at a critical stage in the peace talks and this commission can coordinate with other institutions to reflect the demands of Afghan citizens and institutions.
He added that the human rights violations are one of the causes of the war in Afghanistan.
