Afghanistan endgame: Afghan Taliban announce a big breakthrough
*ISLAMABAD - Over the Afghanistan endgame, Afghan Taliban announce a big breakthrough.*
Taliban’s political spokesman Suhail Shaheen said there is no military solution to the issue of Afghanistan. Shaheen further said that the group was ready to talk to all Afghan sides including the Afghan government after signing a peace deal with the United States. This was the first time that Afghan Taliban have accepted the Afghan government offer of direct dialogues.
“So whether it is the current administration or any other administration in future, we considered them as a party to the conflict and we will have a negotiation with them alongside other Afghans,” he said.
Taliban spokesperson stressed that if U.S. President Donald Trump had not called off the negotiation, the peace deal would have been signed by now and there would have been ceasefire in Afghanistan.
Political figures in Kabul are expecting the next Afghan government to have a clear plan for peace.
