Taliban Reject Consultative Peace Jirga, Urge People Not to Participate

KABUL – Taliban have announced that the representatives of the group will not participate in Consultative Peace Jirga (tribal council) which is scheduled to be organized later this month.
Taliban spokesperson, Zabiullah Mujahid, issued a statement earlier today claiming the National Unity Government (NUG) is attempting to ensure ‘illegitimate’ survival.
The statement further added that similar gatherings have been organized in the past to ensure continuation of ‘occupation’ of the country and continuation of the ‘corrupt regime’.
Mujahid has also added that the Taliban group reject such ‘bogus gatherings’ and urges the residents of the country not participate in Consultative Peace Jirga considering the sensitive situation the country is going through.
The officials are saying that this Jirga is scheduled for 29th of April in which around 2,500 people will participate from all provinces of the country.
The Secretariat Chief of Afghan High Peace Council and Director of Consultative Peace Jirga, Mohammad Umar Daudzai, had earlier said that the Jirga would be an all-inclusive gathering in which representatives of all segments of the society would participate.
