CAPS meets German Special Representative For Afghanistan and Pakistan
On 16 May 2019, Hekmat K. Karzai, Chairman of the Centre for Conflict and Peace Studies (CAPS) met Ambassador Markus Potzel, German Federal Foreign Office Director for South Asia and Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Mr Karzai and Amb Potzel discussed current progress in peace talks including the sixth round of negotiations between the US and Taliban in Doha and the possibility of resuming the intra-Afghan dialogue. Mr Karzai highlighted main reasons that led to postponement of the intra-Afghan dialogue that was planned in late April 2019 in Doha, Qatar.
Mr Karzai hoped that next round the dialogue would be a success as it is a catalyst to a dignified peace in Afghanistan. He also praised Germany for its role in the peace process adding that “Germany brings much legitimacy and substance to the table”. Finally, he said CAPS would be happy assist and contribute as peace is our common cause.
Peter Prügel, German Ambassador in Afghanistan and Hekmatullah Azamy, deputy director of CAPS were also present in the meeting.
