Afghan journalists and media supporting bodies call on the government and Taliban to not censor the upcoming peace talks and hold negotiations openly.

The first round of government-Taliban negotiations is expected to be held in a few days in Qatar after the 400 imprisoned insurgents are released from government custody. The government released 80 of them, promising to free the others soon.

Journalists warn against a “deal” on the fate of Afghans if the talks held behind closed doors without media coverage.

They call on the government and Taliban not to deal on the people’s fate, emphasizing that ignoring of freedom of speech was not acceptable at all.
