Defence Minister: Taliban Trying To Seek Gain By Increasing Violence Ahead Of Peace Talks

Acting Minister of Defence Assadullah Khalid said that despite the efforts to start the intra-Afghan talks with the Taliban, the violence in the country has not diminished and has in fact increased.

Speaking at a meeting in Laghman on Sunday, Khalid said the “enemy” may be trying to seek concessions and “gain points” by intensifying the war in the country.

He assured the people that despite this, the militant group would not be successful and no corner of Afghanistan would fall.

The acting head of the Ministry of Defence (MoD) acknowledged that there were problems and shortcomings on the battlefield and they will be resolved soon.

“Peace is the main will of the people and the priority of the Afghan government,” he said.

He added that the defence and security forces had overcome many restrictions during the negotiations with the Taliban to reach the goal of the intra-Afghan peace talks.

The military remains in a state of “active defence,” Khalid said.

Deborah Lyons, Special Representative of the United Nations (UN) Secretary-General and head of the UN Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), had also pointed that the country was seeing “near-record violence.”

Direct talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban are expected to begin soon.
