Peace Package Offered to Taliban

President Ghani proposed a detailed peace package to the Taliban during the Kabul Process meeting. His offer follows the Taliban's call to the United States to reopen a peace dialogue working through the Taliban's Qatar office. The Afghan president's proposal is broad and sweeping. He offers shelter, security, and the release of Taliban prisoners. But more important is the offer to recognize the Taliban as a political party, and amendment of the Afghan constitution, and talks without preconditions.

Abdul Rahman Rahmani, a guest contributor to this blog, provides his perspective on President Ghani's peace initiative. He offers some suggestions for the implementation and some steps to be taken in the future. Read his article entitled Peace Package Offered to Taliban; What Next?, posted on Afghan War News, March 3, 2018.

Abdul Rahman Rahmani has a bachelor of sociology and philosophy from Kabul University, is an Afghan Army aviation pilot, and author of the book Afghanistan: A Collection of Stories. He currently is a student at the Expeditionary Warfare School, Marine Corps University in Quantico, Virginia.
