MEHWAR: Is The Peace Process Under Afghans’ Control?
Former President Hamid Karzai at a press conference in Kabul on Thursday talked about two major events currently dominating Afghanistan’s politics-- the peace process with the Taliban and the presidential elections -- and said they are not under Afghans’ control.
“So far, the peace process is not Afghan-owned,” Karzai said.
His remarks come as the US and the Taliban are close to finalizing a peace deal. Oslo is about to host intra-Afghan negotiations in the coming days.
In this episode of Mehwar, host Yaser Abrar discusses the topic with Sediq Patman, a political affairs analyst and Ahmad Saeedi, a former Afghan diplomat.
