Following Abdullah Abdullah’s trip to regional countries, a group of Afghan politicians, including Hizb-e-Islami leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, will travel to Pakistan on Monday for talks on the Afghan peace process.
The parliament speaker Mir Rahman Rahmani will also be part of this trip, according to his office.
“Issues related to peace are on the agenda for the trip. Efforts will be made so that the trip could help the peace process,” said Hafiz-Ur-Rahman Naqi, member of Hizb-e-Islami.
“The three-day trip of the parliament speaker is happening based on the invitation of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Different issues on relations between the two countries will be discussed,” said Fahim Kargar, head of the office of the parliament speaker.
Reports indicate that some other politicians will also travel to countries in the region, including India and Pakistan, in near future.
Analysts said the trips indicate that regional consensus on Afghan peace needs to be strengthened.
