KABUL (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani chaired maiden meeting of the High Reconciliation Council (HRC) about appointing members of the Peace Negotiating Team and participants of the Qatar talks as well agenda of the event, the Presidential Palace said Sunday.

A statement from the Presidential Palace received by Pajhwok Afghan News said that the meeting organized at the palace was attended by government leaders, a number of former jihadi.

President Ghani, while inaugurating the body’s first meeting, said the HRC was created after two months of consultations with figures involved in the peace process.

“It is a pride moment when government leaders, politicians and jihadi figures have come together to advance the peace process under a framework of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, we will make important decisions for the future of Afghanistan by forming the peace negotiating team,” he said.

Ghani tanked the elders and representatives of different classes for their participation in the meeting and said the first HRC meeting would decide about choosing members of the peace negotiating team, agenda and participants of the Qatar meeting.

He said HRC meetings would continue and it had the authority to choose members of the peace negotiating team but those who propagated or opposed democracy, the government and achievements of people over the past 18 years would not be included in the team.

The peace negotiating team members should be aware about developments and facts about the Afghan society and could represent women, youths and all segments of the society, he concluded.
