Afghan deal within three days: Alliance delegate

Representatives of various Afghan factions attending the United Nation-sponsored meeting in Bonn (Germany) to decide on an interim government in Kabul, were clear that they wanted peace in the country.

Many of them expressed the hope that the shape of a new government, which would be broad-based and representative, would emerge at the end of the meeting.

Afghan women activists, who have been demanding representation in any future set up in Afghanistan, said the Bonn meeting could be a path-breaking one for them.

A Northern Alliance delegate said that a deal between the various Afghan factions would be reached within three days.

"We expect to have an agreement on a transitional authority within three days," Hussein Anwari, a Northern Alliance member and head of the Harakat-i-Islami faction, told a news agency.

"In three days we are going back to Kabul to start our work," he added

However, acting Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani on Tuesday said he did not expect the peace conference to come out with concrete resolution of the Afghanistan issue.

Rabbani, who was on a visit to the United Arab Emirates, said: "Such resolutions would only be taken through meetings to be held inside Afghanistan and only the Afghan people could take such seminal decisions."

Rabbani arrived in the UAE at the inivitation of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, Dubai crown prince and UAE defence minister.

Rabbani said no outside force should plan to stay permanently in Afghanistan or set up bases, as it was not in the nature of Afghan people to accept foreign domination or interference.

He said Bonn meeting was only a preliminary one, as the leaders of various factions in Afghanistan did not participate.
