KABUL (Pajhwok): The government peace negotiating team chief will address members of the upper house via a video conference on Tuesday to assuage their concerns about the ongoing parleys.

About a month ago, the intra-Afghan talks were inaugurated in Doha, the capital of Qatar, but both sides are yet to reach an agreement on negotiations’ procedure.

The Meshrano Jirga or upper house discussed the peace talks and related issues in today’s session.

Muhiuddin Munsif, a lawmaker from central Kapisa province, said no progress in the procedure had worried people and they must work to ensure that the opportunity was not lost.

Rahmatullah Achakzai from Kandahar expressed his concern over the surge in violence, in which Afghans were killed, saying no renunciation of conflict, increase in violence and prolongation of work on procedure for talks had sparked people’s concerns.

Without going into details, he said both the teams must lead the negotiations in accordance to Islamic principles.

Fazel Hadi Muslimyar, chairman of the house, called lawmakers’ concerns as appropriate, saying that chief negotiator Mohammad Massoum Stanikzai would provide details of the last one month to the house through a video conference.

He said the senators could ask Stanikzai questions about the peace process.
