KABUL: At least 250 people from different classes from

political parties to independent political figures, jihadi leaders, religious

scholars, members of parliament and the high peace council are listed to attend

the so-called “intra-Afghan” dialogue with Taliban representatives in the

Qatari capital of Doha.

The presidential palace said Tuesday in a statement that the

list of 250 people was prepared.

Separately, former president Hamid Karzai announced that he

would not attend the dialogue that follows a similar session held in February

in the Russian capital city of Moscow where he was one of the participants.

Sources close to Taliban and some political analysts say

that the militants had agreed with a 150-man delegation. The sources added that

Taliban would likely reject the meeting.
