‘All talk, no conclusion in ending Afghan hostilities’
ISLAMABAD: The Afghan Taliban has said that despite the ongoing talks with the US and other regional powers, it had “not yet reached” any conclusion that would entail an immediate end to hostilities against America and its allies, according to a media report.
“We are forced to wage war. Our enemies are attacking us; therefore, we are also combating them,” Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid was quoted as saying by DawnNewsTV.
In a series of tweets after six days of talks with the Taliban representatives in Doha last month, Special US Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad said the US has made “significant progress” in its peace talks with the Taliban. But Mujahid said that even in the Moscow talks, nothing concrete was achieved that would compel them to end the war and military pressure.
