Leader of Islamic party calls for revolting against Taleban
Tehran, Nov 7 IRNA-Itar-Tass-ACSNA -- Leader of Afghanistan's
Islamic Party Gulbeddin Hekmatyar called on all Afghans to revolt
against the Taleban movement.
There is no way and we should revolt against the Talebs and put
an end to the civil war, he said in Tehran on Monday.
Hekmatiar condemned Pakistan's interference in Afghanistan's
affairs and said that only the revolt will facilitate the resolution
of the Afghan problem. We are not optimistic over the results of the
talks with the Talebs, he said, adding that the party will continue
armed actions in the north of the country.
Last week the leadership of the Taleban Movement and the Northern
Alliance agreed to hold indirect talks under the U.N. auspices in
order to ensure peace in Afghanistan.
The U.N. secretary-general's special envoy to Afghanistan,
Francecs Vendrell, pointed out that both sides sent messages to the
United Nations and said that they will do their best to put an end to
the war in Afghanistan as soon as possible.
