OIC Stresses Trust Building between Afghan Warring Sides

OIC Stresses Trust  Building between Afghan Warring Sides

KABUL - Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) spokesman HuseyinAvniBostali has called for creation of trust between the warring parties in Afghanistan.
Addressing a press conference in Kabul, Bostali said now was time that the bad days of the Afghan people should come an end, as he referred to the decades-old conflict and associated unfortunate happenings.
He said the global Ulema Conference in Mecca last month had unanimously declared the ongoing war in Afghanistan as ‘unlawful’ and strongly supported Afghan-led peace talks to end the conflict.
He said the 75-member OIC strongly supported the decision of ulema and reconciliation in Afghanistan.
Bostali said trust should be first created between the Afghan factions, then with neighboring countries and in the third stage with the international community.
He made it clear the OIC recently voiced its support for the Afghan peace process and that the organization would never impose or dictate its decisions on others.
“We don’t compete with other countries and organizations regarding the Afghan peace process, we just want to play our own part.”
He said the OIC fully supported all regional and international efforts for the Afghan peace process.

Bostali hailed the ceasefire during Eid-ul-Fitr and added that fighting and money could not resolve issues. He said the Eid-ul-Fitr ceasefire had positive outcome. (Pajhwok)
