Commission to contact former Afghan officials begins activities



The Commission for “Return and Communications with Former Afghan Officials and Political Figures” has started its activities.

Inamullah Samangani, the deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, said that the commission will talk to political figures and other figures who are abroad and pave the way for their return to Afghanistan.

“The commission has a duty to have contact all Afghan political figures living abroad so that the grounds for their return can be provided,” said Inamullah Samangani, deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate.

Meanwhile, some politicians say if the delegation of the Islamic Emirate visits political figures without an agenda, these efforts will not be successful.

“There are political figures who have questions, they have questions about the future of Afghanistan, about the legitimacy of the system and about the future elections in Afghanistan, these are the things that politicians are waiting to hear, and if this delegation talks to them without an agenda, I think it would be useless and would be a failure,” said Sayed Ishaq Gailani, leader of the Afghan National Solidarity Movement.

But it is not clear how many Afghan figures the commission has contacted abroad and what progress has been made. “They should build trust with Afghans that Afghanistan is safe, and guarantee it … and they can invest here,” said Salim Kakar, a political analyst.

“Creating an inclusive government that includes all political parties and all ethnic groups in the government of the Islamic Emirate, and a dignified return and a return with immunity, can give good results, “said Golali Akbari, a former member of the parliament in the time of the previous government.

The commission is chaired by Shahabuddin Delawar, head of the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum, and some high-ranking officials of the Islamic Emirate and other members of the commission.—Tolonews
