KABUL: The leader of Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin Hekmyat has urged the regional countries, specifically the neighboring Pakistan to refrain from efforts aimed at turning Afghanistan into its regional rivalry hub.
During a meeting with the Sikh and Hindu Afghan nationals, Hekmatyar said “We want peace in Afghanistan and the region and the neighboring countries should help Afghanistan in bring peace and stability.”
Hekmatyar further added at a time only Afghanistan was burning in the flames of war but today the fire has further spread into the other countries.
The leader of Hezb-e-Islami warned that the fire and flames of war will further spread and will cover the whole region if peace does not return to Afghanistan.
He said “We want peace and friendly relations with all in the region and I have urged the Pakistani and Indian Ambassadors not to bring their rivalry into Afghanistan.”
This comes as the Afghan officials have long been insisting that Pakistan harbors the anti-government armed militants, specifically the Taliban and Haqqani network leaders who are planning and coordinating attacks in Afghanistan.
Pakistan has long feared regarding the role of its arch rival India in Afghanistan and often blames the country for using the Afghan soil to plan attacks inside the Pakistani soil. -KP
