Taliban ready to play role in ending violence in Afghanistan
The Taliban militants group in Afghanistan touted the group’s role as trouble shooters, bridge builders and problem solvers in a bid to allay the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s concerns.
Following a statement released ahead of the NATO summit in Wales, Taliban claimed that it is the true representative of the Afghan people.
The statement further added that the group can play a central role in resolving the ongoing crisis of Afghanistan.
“The Islamic Emirate has arisen out of this nation and shared in all its toils and sacrifices. Due to this, the Afghan nation has firm belief in the Islamic Emirate,” the statement by Taliban said.
Taliban called for an end of foreign military occupation in a bid to end the crisis in Afghanistan and insisted that complete withdrawal of foreign forces is the only successful solution.
The statement released by Taliban also added that the Afghan people could be united under an “Afghan inclusive” system.
The militant group Taliban has always adopted a tough stance against the foreign military alliance and has been fighting NATO forces since the US-led invasion in late 2001.
The group has so far refused to join the Afghan peace process, insisting that NATO forces should fully withdraw from Afghanistan as a prerequisite for their participation in peace talks. (Khaama.com)
