Muslimyar Says Pakistan Won't Bring Taliban to Negotiation Table

Still distrusting Pakistan's commitments to Afghan peace process, the Senate Chairman Fazl Hadi Muslimyar says Pakistan would not bring the Taliban leaders to the negotiation table.

"Bringing the Taliban to the negotiation table is just an imagination; it's impossible; it's insanity," Muslimyar said.

Criticizing the government for hurrying in trusting Pakistan's commitments, Muslimyar expressed that Afghanistan's hope regarding Pakistan's honesty was pointless.

His remarks came as the peace talks with the Taliban were expected to be initiated in the early March, but now that the month has finished, there has been so sign of progress so far in this respect.

But the High Peace Council (HPC) members blame the delay on Pakistan, saying the Afghan government's premature deadlines for dialogues were as a result of its optimism to the process.
"Those who set deadlines were just optimistic about the process," HPC member Mohammad Akbari said.

The lawmakers, meanwhile, criticize the Pakistani government for what they believe dishonesty to Afghanistan, saying Islamabad sought its interests in continuity of war in Afghanistan.

"The neighboring countries seek their benefit in Afghanistan's insecurity, therefore, they are not happy with peace in Afghanistan," secretary of House of Representatives Abdul Raouf Enami said.

The government officials, however, still express optimism about the initiation of peace talks, saying the process, which Ghani has emphasized would be Afghan-led, will begin in near future.

"So far, the date and location of the dialogues are unknown, but efforts are underway to clear these all," foreign ministry Ahmad Shekib Moshtaghni said.

But the HPC foreign affairs adviser Mohammad Ismail Qasimyar said on Sunday that the peace talks would begin soon and that in Afghanistan.

He hoped that the Afghan government and the Taliban would to come to the negotiation table "without any preconditions."
