Rahmatullah Nabil, a presidential candidate, says that he backs up Zalmay Khalilzad’s efforts but opposes his approach in the peace process.

Rahmatullah Nabil, a presidential candidate, says that he backs up Zalmay Khalilzad’s efforts but opposes his approach in the peace process.
Rahmatullah Nabil, the candidate of the “Security and Justice” electoral ticket says that Khalilzad’s performance in the peace process increased the political legitimacy of Taliban group and on the other hand, it has disintegrated the political consensus for peace in Afghanistan.
“There is no consensus for peace in Afghanistan,” said Mr Nabil in an interview with Iran International, stressing that “people know nothing about the details of the peace process.”

He believes that currently many Afghan politicians are competing to make contact with Taliban group, not for reaching peace and the will of people but to fulfill their own political demands.

According to him, the current administration does not have the capacity to establish political consensus for peace.

Speaking about the regional countries’ support, Rahmatullah Nabil says that Pakistan has created problems for Afghanistan in the past four decades. He said that Pakistan has contacts with many Taliban commanders and this country can force the Taliban to abandon violence.

The presidential candidate further said that Iran’s support from Taliban had been highly tactical until 2014, but with the emergence of Daesh group in Afghanistan, Tehran has a strategic look towards Taliban and wants to make its contacts deeper. Mr Nabil said he worries that ISIS would be a threat to Iran.

Referring to controversies over the election of Wolesi Jirga speaker, Mr Nabil says the problem is that the political figures have always considered ethnic issues first. This issue has led Afghanistan to a devastated country.

“There will be such challenges as long as there would be no national dialogue for national issues. In Afghanistan, we have a majority of patriotic people and a minority of traitors, the line of these two must be separated. I myself do not believe in the issue of majority and minority … ethnic beliefs have destroyed us. The current government is called a national unity government, its offices have joint walls but never consult about national issues to reach an understanding,” he added.
