The participants of the Herat Security Dialogue (HSD) in their second day of meeting stressed the importance of a regional agreement and the role of the regional countries to solve the issue of Afghanistan.
The 11th session of the Herat Security Dialogue was held on Monday and Tuesday in Dushanbe, capital of Tajikistan.
The session was attended by Afghan opposition figures and envoys of more than 20 countries and organizations.
“Russia cannot solve the Afghan crisis [itself] unrealistic… Russia tried to use regional countries for solving these problems, not destabilization of Afghanistan because for us, destabilization of Afghanistan is a very huge problem,” said Vladimir Evseev, Head of CIS Institute.
“[In] most countries, in the United Kingdom for example, there is no united opposition. It is unrealistic to expect complete unity, but I think it is realistic for Afghans to have a common enough vision for the future,” said Nicholas Kay, former UK Ambassador to Afghanistan.
“Practically, what is likely to, what is my recommendation, coming from my background; if today any of our country, India, Pakistan or Iran were to offer some help with the Taliban to fight Daesh, it is a common enemy of all of us. All three of us. It is quite possible that we can work together,” said Mohammad Asad Durrani, former head of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence. “Do not underestimate the capacity of the intelligence agencies to work together.”
However, the Islamic Emirate has not yet commented on the meeting.
Wahid Faqiri, a political analyst, urged the Taliban to bring reforms to their policies.
“The Taliban should accept reforms, otherwise, they will face opposition in the future,” he said.
