EU Calls for Operationalization of High Council for National Reconciliation

KABUL – The European Union (EU) delegation in Kabul on Thursday called for a swift establishment and operationalization of the High Council for National Reconciliation (HCNR), the council designated to provide guidance to the peace talks.
“In addition to political leaders, the membership of the Council should include a diverse membership representing women’s groups, war victims, religious minorities, youth, and civil society organizations,” read the statement.
The statement said that “reaching a sustainable outcome respecting the rights and aspirations of the Afghan people will be best served by a strong political unity on the side of the Republic and the inclusion of all Afghan voices in the process.”
According to the EU, the High Council for National Reconciliation designated to provide guidance to the peace talks.
“The EU Delegation and EU Heads of Mission based in Kabul, as underscored at the Afghanistan 2020 conference, reaffirm the strong support of the European Union and its Member States to a balanced Afghan Peace process,” read the statement.
The EU also expressed concerns about the high level of violence in Afghanistan and the security situation in the country.
