Hekmatyar takes swipe at self-centered alliances

Hekmatyar takes swipe at self-centered alliances

Jul 20, 2017 - 15:18

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon (HIA) Afghanistaninfo-icon chief on Thursday said new political alliances were being formed by individuals seeking more power and benefits from the government.

A statement from the HIA office said Gulbadin Hekmatyar expressed the view during a meeting with the Afghanistan Youth Development Societyinfo-icon (AYDS) in Kabul.

Hekmatyar opined alliances should not be formed to seek personal gains in the framework of political groupings. The HIA, however, would support each coalition working for peace, he promised.

All parties should do their best to end the conflict and uphold Afghan and Islamic values, he stressed, urging heads of political groups to help promote national reconciliation.

He believed the people of Afghanistan could resolve their disputes, saying outsiders, including the neighbours, could do it for them.

He said government leaders should positively respond to genuine public demands and acknowledge their failure. He asked youth to stand united for the development, peace and prosperity of the country.
