Uzbek President Calls for Dialogue to End Afghan Conflict

Uzbek President Calls for Dialogue to End Afghan Conflict

KABUL - Uzbekistan President Shavkat Mirziyoyev has stressed over the political settlement of the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan, a media report said on Monday.
During his trip to India, President Mirziyoyev said that his country had suffered a great deal in the past because of the lingering conflict in Afghan areas and urged for peace, the Hindu said.
It is worth mentioning that the Taliban delegation has recently visited Turkmenistan had held talks with the leadership there.
“Because of the conflict in Afghanistan, we have suffered a great deal in the past. There is no military solution to the problem and the government of Afghanistan should hold political dialogue to end the conflict,” he said.
A Taliban delegation visited Uzbekistan in August for a four-day visit at the peak of the fighting in the Ghazni city in Southeastern Afghanistan.
Mr. Mirziyoyev’s push for dialogue between the government and the fighters in Afghanistan is the latest in his initiatives. In March, he sought an end to the conflict through the formula of “Afghan-led and Afghan-owned” political solution.
President Shavkat Mirziyoyev said that India and Uzbekistan agree on key regional security issues and highlighted the agreement to conduct joint military exercise. (Pajhwok)
