Khalilzad hopes this will be the ‘Last Eid where Afghanistan is at War’

12 Aug 2019 The Khaama Press News Agency

The U.S.

envoy for Afghan peace Zalmay Khalilzad has expressed hopes that this will be the

last Eid where Afghanistan is at war.

Ambassador

Khalilzad said in a Twitter post “Eid Mubarak. I hope this is the last Eid

where #Afghanistan is at war. I know Afghans yearn for peace. We stand with

them and are working hard toward a lasting & honorable peace agreement and

a sovereign Afghanistan which poses no threat to any other country.”

Furthermore,

Ambassador Khalilzad said “Many scholars believe that the deeper meaning of Eid

al-Hadha is to sacrifice one’s ego. 

Leaders on all sides of the war in Afghanistan must take this to heart

as we strive for peace.  My very best

wishes.”

This comes

as negotiations are underway between the U.S. and Taliban leaders to find a

political settlement to the ongoing violence in Afghanistan.

The two

sides have reported good progress in talks and it is expected that the two

sides will sign an agreement in coming days.
