Afghan Tribal Leaders Make Formal Call for Peace with Taliban

Hundreds of Afghan tribal elders and notables were set to make a formal call for peace with the Taliban on Friday, the final day of a traditional assembly that they said was a last chance to end a nine-year war.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai called the "peace jirga" to win national support for a peace plan consisting of offering an amnesty, cash and job incentives to Taliban foot soldiers while arranging asylum for top figures in a second country, Reuters informs.

Jirga delegate Haji Mohammad Leqa said the message to the militants is “we do not want war in Afghanistan.” He urged them to become allies so that foreign foreces can return home.

But the Taliban showed their contempt for the proceedings from the outset, sending a suicide squad to attack the opening on Wednesday, euronews says.
