“Peace for our people means the end of violence, this is why we insist that a ceasefire is necessary to create a conducive environment for talks,” Mohib said speaking at Raisina Dialogue, a multilateral annual conference in New Delhi.
“A ceasefire is a catalyst for sustainable peace because the Afghan people earnestly want it and it will prove to our people and government that our enemies are not only serious about peace but that it is within their control to maintain their part of a future deal,” Mohib said.
He also emphasized on the importance of countries’ cooperation for peace in Afghanistan.
“As our efforts toward peace gain momentum, we must have the cooperation and support of our neighbors for peace to be sustainable,” Mohib said.
According to Mohib, Afghanistan’s national quest for peace is beneficial to the regional and to the world and that there is no victory for violence and terrorism.
The official also warned the Taliban that if they refuse to answer call to peace, they should be prepared to “face the full force of the Afghan nation.”
