Afghan government makes an appeal to the Afghan Taliban from the UNGA forum

NEW YORK - Afghan government makes an appeal to the Afghan Taliban from the UNGA forum.

The Afghan government from the United Nations General Assembly has asked the Taliban to join in peace.

Speaking from the famous green podium inside the UN building, Afghan National security advisor Hamdullah Mohib said, "To the Taliban and their foreign sponsors, HEAR THIS NOW, a message from the Afghan people:

Join us in peace, or we will continue to fight...This is a fight we can win.”

Last February, President Ghani extended an unconditional offer of peace to the Taliban which Mohib said "still stands today" explaining, "the government has the ability to directly negotiate peace with our enemies."

The talks between US and Taliban collapsed in September after several rounds of talks.
