On July 19, 2018 NATO invited representatives from selected national NGOs in Afghanistan to the “Peace and Reconciliation Forum”, held in Kabul at NATO’s Headquarters. A few days prior to this gathering, the invitees had been asked to answer three questions regarding the peace process as a follow up to the momentum created by the three-day ceasefire between the Government of Afghanistan and the Taliban on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, June 16-18, 2018. During the discussion, the representative from APPRO invited the participants to consider a number of key questions that needed to be answered prior to attempting to answer NATO’s questions.
