The chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation Abdullah Abdullah handed over the government’s plan on resolving the current crisis to representatives attending the Extended Troika meeting in Doha, Qatar.

Abdullah says mediation is needed to speed up the process of reaching a political agreement with the Taliban.

Sources in Doha say that the plan that Abdullah handed in, titled “exiting the crisis”, has been shared with the Taliban.

The sources say the plan calls for the formation of a joint government.

Meanwhile, the representatives at the meeting in Doha insisted on the Taliban ending attacks on cities.

At the meeting were representatives from Russia, the United States, China and Pakistan, who called for a peaceful solution to the violence in Afghanistan.

“China is ready to play its part … China will work tirelessly with the international community, neighboring countries and the region,” said Yue Xiaoyong, China’s Special Envoy for Afghan Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Pakistan also responded.
Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said: “Our delegation is in Doha as I speak to you. It is in touch with all parties working for peace and stability in Afghanistan. In the peace and stability of Afghanistan, we have a clear interest.

“We will try and we will continue to do so.”

No clear outcome has yet emerged from the Doha talks.

State Department spokesman Ned Price meanwhile said Wednesday that “Ambassador Khalilzad said when he was present at the political talks yesterday that the international community would closely monitor the behavior of the Taliban. They must take steps to choose.”

The Taliban have not yet commented on the Afghan government’s plan.

Bayat Foundation officials in the northeastern part of the country said Thursday that the aid packages, including flour, rice and oil, were distributed to needy families after a survey was conducted.

The flood victims welcomed the shipment of aid from Bayat Foundation, and called on other organizations and businessmen to help them as soon as possible.

Two people were killed in the recent floods in six districts of Takhar, while hundreds of houses and thousands of acres of land were destroyed and hundreds of livestock lost.

Bayat Foundation is one of the largest charitable organizations in the country, and continuously helps victims of natural disasters.

At least one participant at a major gathering of religious scholars in Kabul on Thursday called for secondary schools for girls to reopen.

“They will learn and will be a good guide for their children in society,” said Sayed Nasrullah Waizi, from central Bamiyan province, as he called on the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) to reopen girls’ schools.

He said that education will help prevent moral and administrative corruption.

IEA’s Acting Prime Minister Mullah Mohammad Hasan Akhund meanwhile said in his speech at the gathering that the meeting was aimed at addressing challenges and strengthening the administration.

“The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is trying to solve all problems … this government has been reached after a lot of sacrifice, we should work together to strengthen it,” Akhund said.

Around 3,500 religious scholars and tribal leaders are at the event which is expected to run for three days.

It comes as Afghanistan is in a deep economic crisis as billions in central bank reserves have been frozen and international sanctions enforced on the banking sector after the IEA seized power.
