Direct talks between the Taliban and the Afghanistan government is likely to begin in some next few months, Mohammad Umer Daudzai, the Afghan special representative for regional affairs for consensus on peace has confirmed on Wednesday.

The Tolo news has quoted Daudzai as saying: “from today up to a few months, we will witness direct negotiations between the Afghan government and the Taliban and that is the main negotiation.”

The envoy has made these remarks while addressing an independent human right commission conference in Afghanistan, according to Tolo news agency.

The Taliban has repeatedly refused to hold direct dialogues with the Afghan government calling it as the puppet of the United States.

During the recent Russia talks, after the Taliban declined to hold talks, Moscow had to bar the idea of involving government in the meeting. The Afghan government has hit back at the Taliban by condemning Moscow for undermining the spirit of the Afghan-led peace process.

Recently, the Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has announced the grand consultative “Jirga” in March in order to head the opinions and views of people about the peace talks with the Taliban leaders.

Daudzai, also an organizer of the “Jigra” for peace, said: “The jirga’s opening date is scheduled for March 17 and will end on March 20. But if the discussion continues, it will be extended.”

The secretariat of Afghanistan’s Lawyers Union Ainuddin Bahaduri, while pointing to this, said mechanism needed to be sought in order for jirga’s executive to make decisions. He said, “We need a specific legal and lawful mechanism to define the consultative jirgas’ decisions on whether they are obligatory or not.”

Also, the High Peace Council said the Jirga will get organized by a non-government commission which will consist of 50 members who will not get selected by the Afghan government.

Duadzai said: “We have formed a non-government commission. From around 50 people who are members of the commission, none of them represents the government. There are people from political and civic addresses, but still, the commission is not completed.”
