“Doha Process Review” Conference Calls for Meaningful Participation of Afghan People in Future Meetings

The participants of the “Doha Process Review” conference, held ahead of the third Doha meeting on Afghanistan, stated in the final declaration that the prevailing spirit in the Doha meetings so far has been one-sided engagement with the Taliban, while the Afghan people, who are the main stakeholders, have not been present at any corner of the negotiating table.

They proposed that meaningful participation of the Afghan people, including political factions, academic institutions, civil activists, and women, should be facilitated in these meetings. They also called for the launch of an “Afghan National Dialogue” as one of the ways out of the current crisis.

The two-day conference, held in Ankara, Turkey, was attended by a number of Afghan political and civil activists, including former members of the National Assembly and former diplomats of the country.
