Introduction

Peace is when people are able to resolve their conflicts without violence and can work together to improve the quality of their lives.

Peace has always been among humanity’s highest values–for some, supreme. Consider: Peace at any price. The most disadvantageous peace is better than the most just war. Peace is more important than all justice.

I prefer the most unjust peace to the justness war that was ever waged. There never was a good war or a bad peace.

Peace, however, is also seen as concord, or harmony and tranquility. It is viewed as peace of mind or serenity, especially in the East. It is defined as a state of law or civil government, a state of justice or goodness, a balance or equilibrium of Powers.

My perspective and associated meaning of peace are best summarized through a number of social principles. These have been documented and the evidence given for them elsewhere, as will be noted for each. Peace is one of the most important wishes of Afghans, and government of Afghanistan. In this topic I mentioned about Peace process and negotiation of peace between Afghanistan negotiations team and Taliban group in Doha.

What should Afghans expect from the peace talks on Doha?

Everyone taking in the talks has acknowledged that they will be challenging – there are deep disagreements between the two sides of peace process, and the conflict is still continuing in Afghanistan.  The Taliban was said the Intra Afghan peace process is “good progress” that both sides Taliban and Afghan government were talking rather than fighting and also Afghanistan government hoped for a humanitarian ceasefire and a peace” that accepted and supported by all Afghan citizens”.

But Taliban do not interest to talk about on ceasefire at the beginning of appointment agenda of intra Afghan peace process in Doha; Taliban group said we do not want to talk about ceasefire at the first step of negotiations and we will mention about this issue at the end of negotiations.

Now after fifteen days for appointment agenda for starting of formal negotiation between afghan government and Taliban both side of negotiation can not a specific agreement that we have formal negotiation at Doha.

Is Doha being best place for negotiations of peace process?

Qatar after nearly 20 years of conflict, the Afghan beneath ornate chandeliers in a grand ballroom what expect will be intensely difficult negotiations to shape Afghanistan’s future.

Historic peace talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government have opened in Qatar, with the warring parties meeting face-to-face for the first time to end nearly two decades of conflict.

Qatar is in the east of Arabia, bordering the Persian Gulf and Saudi Arabia, in a strategic location near major petroleum deposits.

But Doha is not a good place for peace negotiation of Afghanistan why? Because us we know better in the foreign policy of Qatar; four countries are most efficient

United sate of America, United Kingdom, France and Reissue. United sate of America is more affective and efficacious whenever America wants something about peace process that will be done.

After that United Kingdom, France and Reissue are three other powerful countries that have effect on foreign policy and big decide of Qatar.

Qatar and the fate of the Afghan government’s peace talks with the Taliban

Past experience of Doha’s in resolving disputes, Qatar cannot be a suitable venue for peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban for a number of reasons.

  1. Qatar’s failed experience in resolving of Yemen, Libya, Palestine and northern Ireland.
  2. Qatar’s non-neutrality in resolving conflict
  3. Improper relationship of Qatar with a number of regional actors like Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russia and some others countries.
  4. No executive guarantee in negotiation.

My opinion and also that I had searched about of conflict resolution models of peace and I wrote a topic about this issue at 8subh_daily Newspaper one month ago that follow link (https://8am.af/conflict-resolution-models-for-afghanistan-and-the-prospects-for-the-doha-peace-talks/)

And also, I wrote a topic about Qatar’s foreign policy in resolving the conflict and Doha’s role in the afghan-peace talks at 8subh_daily Newspaper about 5 days ago. In this link (https://8am.af/qatars-foreign-policy-in-resolving-the-conflict-and-dohas-role-in-the-afghan-peace-talks/)

Because of that facts that I mentioned in this topic Doha is not perfect and best place for negotiation of peace process between two sides of conflict Afghanistan government and Taliban group; I think based of those facts that I founded from all angles Germany, Norway and some other neutral countries with executive guarantees can be best options for continuing the peace process and achieving the aspirations for Afghanistan.
