In an interview with a Turkish media outlet, he also welcomed China’s involvement in ongoing efforts for peace and reconciliation in the war-devastated country.
There will be a meeting (today) in Moscow between the representatives of the US, Russia and China. That’s a very good sign,” the ex-president said.
He told Anadolu Agency: “For too long, my country suffered from war and conflict. For too long, it does not have an equal seat that was to decide its fate.”
While pleading for a political settlement, he believed the conflict could not be resolved militarily. He did not buy the idea of a military solution.
Karzai called peace in Afghanistan before the presidential elections a priority. The priority for us now is peace. Once we have peace, then we can conduct our elections more properly.”
