Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and the self-proclaimed president Abdullah Abdullah are close to resolving their political differences.
After mutual accusations of falsifying the results of the presidential election, Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah held their inaugurations in early March and took oaths. Between the parties, negotiations were held with the assistance of mediators, both Afghan politicians, and US representatives.
Now we are talking about completing the development of a scheme that is expected to put an end to political tensions with the president.
Abdullah lost the election, but disobeyed the results and formed a parallel government. He then agreed with some mediation. President Ghani also agreed to accept Abdullah in his government as head of the peace efforts body.
“As soon as our plan is final and the consultations are completed, we will share this plan with intermediaries to share with the opposite side. Now the situation requires flexibility on both sides so that we can solve problems, and we hope that our plan will lead us to a political understanding, ”said the official representative of Abdullah Feraidun Khozon on Friday.
The lack of consolidated leadership in Afghanistan puts the population at greater risk. This was stated by the Head of the European Union mission in Kabul.
“The EU delegation, in agreement with the head of the EU mission, based in Kabul, and the Norwegian ambassador calls on all parties to the current political negotiations to reach an agreement with the highest sense of urgency,” the statement said. – It is necessary to begin the peace process as soon as possible. The well-being of the Afghan people and the broader interests of the nation should come first, while Afghanistan faces continuing instability and new health risks. Every day that passes without a consolidated government team puts the Afghan population in great danger, undermines confidence in democratic institutions and discourages European partners. The time for unity is now! ” – says Pia Stjernvall
