The delegation of a major militant group has called for the withdrawal of NATO-led troops from Afghanistan, a private television channel reported Saturday.

"Hizb-e-Islami wants the foreign troops to withdraw from Afghanistan as a precondition for peace," Tolo broadcast in its main news bulletin.

Quoting Hizb-e-Islami sources, Tolo said that foreign forces should begin pullout in July and complete the process within four to six months.

A delegation of Hizb-e-Islami brought a 15-point peace plan to Kabul two weeks ago and met with President Hamid Karzai and other Afghan officials and politicians including some parliamentarians.

Second only to Taliban, the Hizb-e-Islami led by former premier Gulbudin Hekmatya has been fighting the Afghan security forces and NATO-led troops.
