The Islamic Countries Cooperation Summit, held in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, has voiced support in favor of the Afghan peace negotiations with Taliban, deputy presidential spokesman Siyamak Hirawi told TOLOnews.
"The Afghan President said in the conference that effective cooperation eradicates violence from Islamic countries," Hiraw recounted, adding that the countries urged Pakistan to work together with Afghanistan.
He added that more than 50 countries attended the summit committed to bringing peace and stability in the region, particularly in Afghanistan.
However, Afghan lawmaker Abdul Qayoum Sajadi believes that Islamic countries cannot play a major role in bringing peace in the region as many are dealing with insurgency and conflict in their own countries.
This comes as one of the Taliban's prominent members Mullah Agha Jan Muhtasem asked for an immediate end to a decade-long war in Afghanistan. However, the Taliban said in statement recently that Muhtasem was fired from his position by Taliban leader and he is no longer representing the Taliban.
