Former Afghan President Hamid Karzai has urged the Afghan government to halt further execution of the prisoners charged with the terror offences.
In an online statement issued following the death of Taliban supreme leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour, Karzai has said brotherhood and unity are the only way to achieve peace in the country.
The statement added that war and violence have been imposed on the Afghan people from abroad, insisting that the Taliban statement proves that the group’s leader Mansour was killed on the side of Durand Line in control of Pakistan.
He called on the new leader of the Taliban group Mawlavi Haibatullah Akhundzada to join peace process and return to Afghanistan.
Taliban on Wednesday announced the appointment of Mawlavi Akhundzada as the successor of Mansour who was killed in an air strike in Balochistan province of Pakistan late on Saturday afternoon.
