Major Issues Halting Hekmatyar’s Return to Kabul Solved: HIA

KABUL - Hizb-I-Islami Afghanistan (HIA) on Saturday said major obstacles in the way of party leader Gulbadin Hekmatyar return to Kabul have been resolved with the help of government commission tasked to implement the peace process.
HIA spokesman Qaribur Rahman Syed in an exclusive interview with Pajhwok Afghan News said Hekmatyar would surface in Kabul soon.
He said major problems regarding the return of HIA leader had been resolved and a joint commission of the party and the government was honestly working on the other issues.
He said efforts were underway to resolve other issues remaining as both the HIA and government commission had been working hard.
Discussions over the release of HIA prisoners were underway and a party delegation would visit inmates in Bagram Prison next week, Sayed said.
Earlier, the HIA delegation met with the HIA prisoners in Pul-I-Charkhi Jail in Kabul.
Last year, the HIA and the Afghan government signed a historic peace agreement. In line with the agreement, the government should release HIA prisoners and facilitate repatriated refugees. (Pajhwok)
