The embassy said that it was deeply concerned about “high levels” of violence in Afghanistan.
“As we move towards crucial negotiations, we urge the Taliban to listen to the clear demand of the Afghan people, demonstrate they are serious about peace, and reduce the violence,” the embassy said in a statement. “Continuing attacks create a climate which encourages further insecurity, instead of building confidence that peace is possible.”

It called on parties to the conflict to heed the UN Security Council’s calls for an immediate cessation of hostilities, in order to reduce violence and to ensure access of humanitarian aid throughout the country is not unduly hindered..

The embassy expressed concern about the deliberate targeting of civil society members, religious figures and healthcare workers. “This is completely unacceptable. We call for a robust investigation into all incidents of violence where civilians have died or been injured, and for those responsible to be held to account.”

The embassy said that they share the Afghan government’s commitment to protect and build on the rights and freedoms gained by the people of Afghanistan over the past 19 years. “Afghans across the country have articulated their strong desire to defend these hard-won freedoms. The Taliban must heed these voices, and must be ready to compromise, if a sustainable peace is to emerge.”
