The delegation included members of Afghanistan’s High Peace Council representing major mainstream parties, political factions and groups as well as representatives of the government agencies.

Mentioning about the peace process which was uniquely successful on the ground as it was nationally owned and home-grown, he underscored that the lesson learnt by Nepal would be the best reference to those countries that are suffering from internal conflicts and violence and trying to restore peace and stability.

The Afghan delegation is in Kathmandu to learn from Nepal’s peace process in order to draw lessons for the peace process in Afghanistan.
