King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia has followed with great interest the truce reached by the Afghan government and Taliban movement during Eid al-Fitr, expressing his support for it, a Royal Court statement said on Wednesday.

King Salman hoped that the truce will be renewed and built upon for a longer period so that all parties can work together to achieve peace for the Afghan people.

He added that the Afghan people, who have suffered from the horrors of war, and the Islamic world, 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 innocent lives based on the great Islamic teachings that call for rejecting division, and for cooperation for righteousness and piety, and forgiveness and reconciliation among the brothers.

The Royal Court statement said that the King also hoped for success to the Afghans in achieving what is best for their country and for reconciliation in order to achieve security and stability.
