Moreover, he described peace as the basic need of the Afghan people, saying that we hope the United States would have attention to relevant complaints and the Afghan people will be kept informed of any progress in dialogue with the Taliban. He said there could be doubt about US will and Dr. Zalmi Khalilzad's peace talks with the Taliban and the negotiations that are being conducted without the participation of the people and the government could have raised distrust and doubt. 

The Senate Speaker emphasized close ties and cooperation between the two countries, especially in overseeing government affairs and emphasized the strengthening of these ties.

Moreover, she referred the Dr. Zalmay Khalilzad's trips and talks with the Taliban, said the United States was only seeking to open the door for inter-Afghan talks in the peace process and would certainly not discuss the future government of Afghanistan, and any decision on internal matters of Afghanistan are related to the Afghans themselves
