On the threshold of the intra-Afghan negotiations, concerns are on the rise among politicians over the political disagreements between President Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah, the head of High Council for National Reconciliation on issues of national interests including their efforts to sort out the structure of the peace council.
Afghan politicians said that while the people await impatiently to see the start of the peace talks between the team of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the Taliban, there isn't a unified stance on peace within the government in Kabul.
The High Council for National Reconciliation expects the Taliban to get ready for intra-Afghan negotiations that have faced multiple delays and are expected to begin this week, according to an official of the council.
The Afghan government has said that all required arrangements have been taken for the start of the intra-Afghan negotiations, but sources have said the process is facing delays as the Taliban’s negotiating team is not ready so far.
