Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and his political rival, Dr Abdullah Abdullah, have ended their political differences and signed a power-sharing agreement.
A spokesman for President Ashraf Ghani announced in his tweet that the two sides would sign the agreement.
Spokesman Siddique Siddiqui said further details regarding the agreement would be revealed shortly.
The presidential spokesman clarified in a tweet that Dr Abdullah Abdullah would head the High National Reconciliation Council and that members of his team would be included in the federal cabinet.
Former Afghan chief executive and presidential candidate Dr Abdullah Abdullah has refused to acknowledge the results of last September’s presidential election.
On the same day that President Ashraf Ghani took the oath of office in March this year, Dr Abdullah Abdullah also held a ceremony to take the oath of office.
According to Afghan government officials, the agreement between the two sides will be important in advancing talks with the Taliban.
