The head of the Hizb-e-Islami peace negotiations delegation Karim Amin said there are a number of people and groups inside and outside government opposing the implementation of the peace deal between the group and the Afghan government.

He said a number of countries are also not interested in lasting peace in Afghanistan.

“Delay is not from our side; there are a number of problems in implementing the agreement which have postponed the return of Hekmatyar to Kabul,” he stated.

“We hear that there are a number of groups, circles and figures that are trying to challenge the peace process in Afghanistan,” he added.‎

Meanwhile, a number of lawmakers said it is government’s responsibility to pave the ground for Hizb-e-Islami leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar’s return to Kabul.

“The Afghan government will not be able to bring Hekmatyar to Afghanistan until the international community lifts its sanctions against him [Hekmatyar],” said Rahmatullah Achekzai, member of Meshrano Jirga (Upper House of Parliament).

Amin said the delegation from a UN Security Council and the US will visit Kabul in the next few days and will discuss the lifting of sanctions against Hekmatyar.
