Afghanistan Electoral Crisis Delays Naming of Negotiating Team: US

The electoral dispute between Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and political rival Abdullah Abdullah has delayed the naming of a team to negotiate with the Taliban, the U.S. State Department said in a statement.

“President Ghani has told us he is consulting with Dr. Abdullah and other Afghan leaders and will announce an inclusive team in the coming few days,” the statement said.

The statement added that the current high level of violence by the Taliban is unacceptable.

“We acknowledge the Taliban have taken steps to stop attacks against the Coalition and in cities. But they are killing too many Afghans in the countryside.

This must change. Violence at these levels risks drawing both sides into a vicious cycle, serves no one, and undermines peace,” the statement said.
