Advisor to the President of Afghanistan in public relations and strategic affairs Waheed Omar also stated that Ashraf Ghani agreed with negotiation in Qatar. Nevertheless, as he said, the government holds the opinion that in the future negotiations should be held in the territory of Afghanistan.

Earlier National Security Advisor Hamdullah Mohib of Afghanistan suggested holding the following round of negotiations in IRA, and the president supported this proposal. However the Taliban disagreed with it, insisting on the dialogue continuation in Qatar. Indonesia invited the Afghani parties to visit Jakarta.

At the yesterday’s session of the Council of reconciliation Abdullah underlined that the proposal on transfer of the venue of the Inter-Afghani negotiations should not become an obstacle on the way of their continuation.

Let’s remind that at negotiations the break was announced. It is expected that the dialogue will be renewed on January 5, next year.
