Afghanistan: Is it time for reconciliation? – International community and especially #Afghanistan’s neighboring countries must stand up for this war-ravaged country and help it to achieve stability and security, rebuild the country and promote economic development.

A two-day International Conference of Muslim Scholars on Peace and Stability in the Republic of Afghanistan, sponsored by Riyadh and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), was held on July 10 this year. The conference came at a very complex and delicate time due to the current difficulties being experienced by Afghanistan. On a daily basis, Afghanistan is the scene of confrontations between security elements and the Afghan army on the one hand, and Taliban fighters on the other, in addition to the remnants of Al-Qaeda and Daesh (the self-proclaimed IS). Such confrontations have resulted in a large number of casualties among civilians. The conference, which was attended by more than 105 prominent Muslim scholars from Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Indonesia, Egypt, Sudan, Morocco and other countries, aimed to consolidate peace and stability in Afghanistan and condemned all forms of terrorism and violent extremism.
