Afghanistan peace only possible through intra-Afghan agreement, Hamid Karzai

MOSCOW: Recent developments in the Afghan peace process, provoked by a possible refusal of the new US administration to withdraw its troops in violation of the 2020 agreement with the Taliban, pushed countries to try and avert a resulting escalation in hostilities.

Last week Moscow summoned a meeting on Afghanistan so the parties could “get prepared” for an upcoming Istanbul meeting, where they will hold full-fledged direct peace talks under UN auspices.

In an interview with Anadolu Agency, former Afghan President Hamid Karzai, now a top Afghan peace negotiator, shared his vision of the current situation in the peace process and his role in it.

Karzai praised the meeting in Moscow, saying it was well-prepared and let the sides have open talks on the most acute problems.
