Then, the meeting participants expressed their views on the performance of the High Council for National Reconciliation. They stated that the council hasn’t been able to properly do its duties. The meeting participants added that the council has to work on its structures and capacity in order to become capable of managing the peace process on behalf of the Afghan government. The participants said that less attention has been paid to the technical and academic aspects of peace process by the council. Therefore, the council hasn’t recruited technical people to technically and academically manage the process. Subsequently, priorities of peace process was discussed. The meeting participants stated that having a clear agenda for peace process, putting the people in the picture of the developments and challenges, including public views in the peace agenda, defining every stage of peace process and having preparation and plans for each stage are the priorities of peace process.
