  • TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Minister of Hajj and Religious Affairs of Afghanistan, Mohammad Qasim Halimi, had reportedly asked former Indonesian VP Jusuf Kalla to facilitate a dialogue between the government and the Taliban in an effort to broker a peace deal.

    “We would like Pak Jusuf Kalla and Indonesian ulemas to facilitate a dialogue between Afghan and Taliban ulemas to end the conflict,” said Qasim as cited from the press release sent by Jusuf Kalla’s team on Wednesday, December 23. 

    The press release also states that the proposition is meant to put an end to the conflict between factions that has loomed over Afghanistan for years, especially to collectively agree upon a governance model for the country populated by 32 million people. 

    Jusuf Kalla, who is the chairperson of the Indonesian Mosque Council (DMI), stated he will soon report to the current vice president Ma’ruf Amin on his plan to help realize peace in Afghanistan as soon as he arrives in Indonesia.
