KABUL: Afghan President, Hamid Karzai has invited Taliban Leader, Mullah Umer to give up on their weapons and join political mainstream.
During the press conference in Kabul, he said that Mullah Umer can set up his political office in Afghanistan – however, for that he has to abandon war against the government.
Afghan President said that not only he can build his own political party, he along with his friends can also appear as candidate in the election and can take up the charge of the country if declared victorious in the elections.
Karzai added, “I repeat my call on all Afghans, those who aren’t the puppets of others and have (only) issues with us at home — they’re welcome for any talks.”
Karzai has repeatedly called on Omar and other insurgents fighting against his administration, to renounce violence and accept peaceful reintegration and have now once again invited them for a bargain.
