Taliban’s warning of attacking Afghans at odds with purusing peace: US Ambassador Bass

In reaction to Taliban’s recent statement on elections, US ambassador to Kabul has called insurgent’s threatening to attack elections in contridiction to a commitment for purusing peace.

US Ambassador John Bass has stressed that “Elections are a civilian process, about the Afghan people getting together to make a choice.  When the Taliban say they are going attack the elections, what they’re saying is that they are going to attack the Afghan people.  That is fundamentally at odds with a commitment to pursuing peace.”

This comes after the Taliban released a statement on Monday threatening to boycott the elections and issuing a warning to attack those who will provide security for elections.
