Spokesman for Hezb-e-Islami (Hekmatyar)
Eng. Haroon  Zarghoon  Harun Zarghun Haroun Zarghoun(20091204, 20100322, 201110422, 20120123).

He told AFP on 20100321. "A delegation comprising senior members of Hezb-e-Islami is in Kabul with a 15-article peace plan to discuss with the government,"

He said the reports about Hekmatyar's readiness for talks were part of the US and Afghan government's 'baseless propaganda'.

"Hekmatyar himself will never sit on table of talks with the government as long as there is no clear date for pullout of foreign troops even if he is offered to become president," said Eng. Zarghoon.

The purported Hizb-i-Islami spokesman added that if the Afghan government can give a timetable for ending the 'foreign invasion' in Afghanistan only then Hekmatyar can sit for talks with other Afghan parties.

Eng. Haroon Zarghoon said the Karzai administration was ready to accept some of the party's conditions (15 Article Peace Plan). But details of the negotiations could not be revealed before Hekmatyar spelled out his stance.(20120123)
