Afghanistan was the only way to end the war and ensure rights — including for women.he Taliban said Sunday they remain committed to peace talks but insisted a “genuine Islamic system” in
Taliban co-founder and deputy leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar said Sunday that the group was committed to the peace talks.
“Our very participation in the negotiations […] indicates openly that we believe in resolving issues through (mutual) understanding,” Baradar was quoted as saying in a statement.
He said the only way to end the conflict in Afghanistan was to establish an Islamic system after the departure of all foreign forces.
“A genuine Islamic system is the best means for a solution to all issues of the Afghans,” Baradar said.
His statement reportedly acknowledged the fears in Afghanistan and abroad about the kind of system that would emerge — and its impact on women — saying that fell “within the ambit of the intra-Afghan negotiations”.
Baradar also assured that the rights of all Afghans including women would be accommodated in that system, according to “the glorious religion of Islam” and Afghan traditions.
