KABUL: A delegation of the High Peace Council of Afghanistan would soon pay a visit to Pakistan to make the peace process a success, an official of the council said Sunday.

The deputy chairman for the foreign affairs of the High Peace Council, Muhammad Ismail Qasimyar told AIP the head of the peace shura, Salahuddin Rabbani, had discussed various key issues with the Prime Minister of Pakistan Raja Pervaiz Ashraf during his visit to Kabul. He said the government of Pakistan had pledged all-out assistance in this regard.

"The High Peace Council delegation would pay visit to Pakistan in the month of Ramazan.

The support of Pakistan is vital in this regard," he added.

He said they had demanded of Pakistan to release Taliban prisoners and stop the decrees being given in Pakistan against the Afghan government.

Political analyst Abdul Malik Matin says Pakistan was not extending assistance towards the peace process of Afghanistan.

"If Pakistan and its intelligence agencies want, peace would be restored to Afghanistan and the Taliban would sit on the negotiations table within a month," he added.

Pakistan has repeatedly pledged to extend its cooperation to hold negotiations between the armed opponents and Afghan government.

However, the peace process could not get any development in this regard so far.

End.
