Afghanistan will oppose Taliban's Qatar political office if the insurgents refuse to talk to the government, Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Wednesday.
A new draft plan by the Afghan government sets three preconditions for agreeing to the office. The plan asks the Taliban to accept that they will negotiate with the government, clearly identify their representatives and give the Afghan government the right to close down the office when it deems necessary.
The leader of insurgent group Hizb-e-Islami, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, said recently that Afghanistan will face the same crisis in 2014 that it witnessed after the withdrawal of Soviet troops from the country.
In an interview with a British newspaper, Hekmatyar said that a peaceful political transition should happen in the country to avoid chaos and crisis after the complete withdrawal of foreign combat forces from Afghanistan.
