KABUL: Moscow on Wednesday has welcomed all-Afghan talks in

Doha, Qatar, held for two days 7th and 8th July with participations of over 60

Afghan delegates with Taliban negotiators to end decades long conflict, and

Russia hoped that it would lay the foundation for the future reconciliation

agreement in Afghanistan

“Russia supports the results of the Second Inter-Afghan

Dialogue Conference held in Doha on July 7-8,” Russian Foreign Ministry’s Spokeswoman,

Maria Zakharova said in a statement.

“It was basically a continuation of the conversation between

representatives of a broad range of Afghanistan’s socio-political forces,

including the armed opposition, which was started last February, and is aimed

at launching a peace process in that country as soon as possible,” she added.

“We are satisfied that the participants at the Doha

meeting adopted a final statement reflecting their intention to steadily move

towards an inter-Afghanistan peace,” Zakharova said in the statement.

Moscow has repeatedly stressed that the inter-Afghan

dialogue “reflects the principle of an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace

process that was broadly approved by the international community.”

“In Afghanistan’s current reality, such meetings are the

only viable channel of communication not only for the confronting sides of the

conflict but also for the key political forces of the IRA, without which it

will hardly be possible to achieve durable peace,” she said in the


She said that they hope communication will lay the

foundation for a future peace agreement and will more clearly outline the

contours of the post-conflict arrangement in Afghanistan. 

Former President, Hamid Karzai also supported the results of

a two-day meeting between Afghan politicians and Taliban representatives in

Qatar called intra-Afghan dialogue.

“I welcome the positive results of the Afghan peace meeting

in Doha. The return of peace to Afghanistan is only possible when the Afghans

decide their future through the intra-Afghan dialogue,” he said.

An Intra-Afghan meeting in Doha, the capital of Qatar,

called for decline in violence, release of elder, sick inmates, allowing women the

rights of education and work within Islamic teaching and seeking

support and assistance of international community in post-peace era.

In a joint statement, all participants agreed that achieving

sustainable, throughout and a dignified peace which is the demand of the Afghan

people was only possible via inclusive Afghan negotiations.
