The Minister for Foreign Affairs, EU and Cooperation, Arancha González Laya, this Saturday asked the Taliban to agree to a ceasefire in Afghanistan, trusting that the peace talks that began in Doha between the Afghan government and the insurgent preserve the gains of the last two decades, particularly in relation to women’s rights.
The head of diplomacy was one of more than a dozen ministers and dignitaries from around the world who telematically attended the ceremony that started the historic talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban to end nearly two decades of conflict .
In his message, he hoped that this dialogue would be “the turning point for Afghans” and that the outcome of the negotiations would be a “peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan”.
“We clearly support a negotiation process and an outcome that takes into account the values and principles of the UN Charter, to which Afghanistan is a party, and the continuity of its international obligations,” particularly the fulfillment of human rights. González Laya stated.
