The opening of Torkhan crossing, which is now open around-the-clock, seven days of a week, has earned criticism from former President Karzai and others, who oppose it as “border”. Hamid Karzai believes recognizing the Durand Line as an official boundary between Afghanistan and Pakistan will be a great betray to Afghanistan and its nation.
While attending a press conference, Hamid Karzai said that Pakistan Prime Minister in presence of Afghan government officials in eastern Nangarhar province, has to mention Durand Line as a border, and this indicates that still, such things are reducing our freedom.
“In presence of Afghan government officials, writing so-called Durand Line as a border by Pakistani side is a real betrayal for Afghanistan. No Afghan has ever accepted this treachery since Gandomak treaty,” the former president added.
Meanwhile, Sediq Sediqqi, a presidential spokesman said that the Afghan government does not have the authority to make political decisions on the Durandimaginary line, it is up to the Afghan people to decide.
Hamid Karzai also talked over the peace process, security, elections, and other numerous important topics. He emphasized on the need for transparency in the parleys.
He asked the Taliban to sit with their compatriots for an intra-Afghan dialogue on ways of ending the war and stabilizing the country.
