Turkey to host Afghan conference, India also invited. Turkey announced on Tuesday that this month it would host a 10-day peace conference in Istanbul between the various struggling sides of Afghanistan. Turkey’s foreign ministry issued a statement saying that the conference would include representatives of the Taliban and the government of Afghanistan, as well as officials from Turkey, Qatar, and the United Nations. India has also been invited to this conference. The conference will take place from 24 April to 4 May.
The sudden announcement was made after a Taliban spokesman said on Monday that religious militias would not participate in this week’s peace conference in Turkey, which seemed to be hamstrung by the US effort for a peace plan. Turkey’s foreign ministry did not provide detailed information about the participants of the conference. It said that the purpose of the meeting is to expedite the inter-Afghan dialogue which is going on in Doha and to find an appropriate and permanent political solution. The United Nations said that the conference’s co-organizers support a sovereign, independent, and unified Afghanistan.
