Reactions to Jirga:  Decisions Should Be Implemented

KABUL - Some delegates of the Loya Jirga, the grand assembly, said that decisions of past jirgas have not been implemented, but the decisions from this jirga should be.
Also, the nation's achievements should be maintained in the peace process, said delegates.
They said that last year’s Jirga asked for a ceasefire, but it was not implemented.
A conditional release of almost 400 Taliban prisoners was one of the key demands of the jirga delegates.
“The views that we shared in last (year’s) Jirga--that a ceasefire should be announced with the Taliban to ensure peace--was not implemented,” said Safi Gul Mohammadi, a Jirga delegate.
“The name of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan should be preserved. Women's rights and human rights should be preserved. The last 18 years’ achievements should be preserved. All these were decided in the committees,” said Mir Haidar Nazari, a Jirga delegate.  (TOLO NEWS)
