A statement from Saudi royal court said that Salman has followed with great interest the truce reached by the Afghan government and the Taliban during three days of Eid and backed it.
He hoped that the truce will be renewed and built upon for a longer period so that the parties can work together to achieve peace for the Afghan people, according to the statement as cited by Saudi Press Agency.
The king said that the Afghan people, who have suffered so much from the horrors of war and the Islamic world with them, are looking forward to turning the page of the past and to open a new page based on tolerance and reconciliation, renouncing violence and preserving the lives of innocent people based on the Islamic teachings that call for rejecting division, and for cooperation for righteousness and piety, and forgiveness and reconciliation among the brothers.
The king prayed for the success of Afghans in achieving what is best for their country, and to reconcile them and to bring about security and stability to Afghanistan and its people.
