According to the source, agreement had reached on Dostum’s return to Kabul and President Ashraf Ghani had agreed that the first vice president could return to the country. The source added that Gen. Dostum return is unconditional and he would resume the office of first vice president.

Upon the return of Dostum back to the country legal options would be used to pave the way for the release of Nizamuddin Qasari, a close aide of the vice president and commander of illegal private militia.

Relation between Gen. Dostum and Presidential Palace strained after the incident between Ahmad Ashgi and Dostum. The first vice president had been in Turkey after he was accused of abusing the former Jawzjan governor Ashgi.
