Taliban has asked the US to restart negotiations with the militants as the bomb blasts, night raids and clashes increased in the country after the US-Taliban talks were stopped. Due to this, civilians are suffering the most.
“We want the negotiations to be resumed from the subjects they stopped so that the problems be resolved sooner. The intra-Afghan dialogues should be held and the two sides reach a ceasefire agreement,” Sayed Akbar Agha, who now runs the Council for Afghanistan Salvation, a political party, said on Tuesday.
US President has called off the talks with Taliban leaders after a suicide attack that killed an American soldier on September 5 in Kabul.
Meanwhile, a militant delegation chaired by Maulavi Abdul Salam Hanafi traveled to Iran to talk to Iranian officials on different issues, Sohail Shahin, a spokesman for Taliban’s political office in Qatar, said.
Another team of the insurgents flew to Moscow to talk with Russian officials, according to Shahin.
Earlier, a spokesman of the Taliban had said that their representatives went to China.
The government reacted to Taliban’s visits to neighboring states, asking them not to host representatives of a group “whose hands are red with people’s blood”.
“We do not expect our neighboring countries to host a terrorist group who has the innocent Afghans’ blood in hand and thinks of Afghanistan destruction,” said Sediq Sediqqi, President Ghani’s Spokesman.
