Taliban Attacks Indicate They Do Not Stand For Peace: Sediqqi

The spokesman to the President, Sediq Sediqqi has said that Taliban still do not believe in peace and do not accept the peace opportunity that the government and US is providing.

During a press conference today in Kabul, Sediqqi said that the Taliban attacks starkly contrast to what they are talking about in Qatar.

 

 

He added that the Taliban’s attacks on civilians in the outskirts of Kunduz have shown a clear hostility to the Afghan people, and the attack will not remain unanswered, heavy casualties are now being inflicted on the Taliban.

The President’s spokesman emphasised that the security forces are trying to thwart the threats but the Taliban has displaced civilian houses.

“Whatever is underway in Doha in the 9th round of talks should be result oriented. Khalizad will come to Kabul to clarify on the negotiations,” Sediqqi said.

According to him, the end result of the talks should ideally be a ceasefire in the current scenario and direct talks between the Taliban and the government.

“The Doha talks relates to the future of Afghanistan. Our red line is republican and will not be changed,” he added.

He pointed out that the Taliban and the terrorist groups such as ISIS-K threaten the common interest of Afghanistan and need a common solution.
