He lamented the fact that Kabul does not have any clear-cut program on ways to achieve peace in Afghanistan, and that the ISAF mission had also failed to help implement this goal.
"The presence of foreign military forces did not meet our expectations. The international community pledged a lot but failed to deliver. And neither the authorities nor those backing the Taliban managed to hammer out a full-fledged peace program," Gilani said.
He predicted that the war in Afghanistan will never show signs of abating and that the Taliban will dominate by spring, refusing to sit down for talks with weak authorities.
"I think Afghan authorities will have no chances during the talks, given that Kabul's hopes for peace are linked with Pakistan, which may fail to meet Kabul's expectations as far as Islamabad's ability to have an impact on the Taliban is concerned," he said.
Late last month, the Afghan Foreign Ministry said that the government is due to begin peace talks with the Taliban on February 6. The peace talks will be open to those Taliban factions which are willing to negotiate with the government, while the remaining factions will be fought collaboratively, the ministry said.
According to the Afghan High Peace Council, Islamabad's participation will ensure that talks between the Pakistani government and the Pakistani Taliban will also take place.
In July, Islamabad hosted the first round of peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban, which so far have stalled.
