Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has targeted the US on the increasing violence of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Ghani said the rapid withdrawal of US forces was responsible for the escalating violence in Afghanistan. He promised that the Afghan government and military would now focus on reducing the growing influence of the Taliban and protecting key urban areas.
Ashraf Ghani has urged lawmakers to unite nationally and support the mobilization campaign against the Taliban in the wake of the ongoing conflict between the Taliban and Afghan government forces over the past few months. Ashraf Ghani’s statement is considered very important in view of the withdrawal of troops of the US and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
‘Taliban does not believe in peace’
Addressing parliament, Ghani said, “peace process talks with the Taliban have not yielded any benefit, but have created a state of suspicion and suspicion among the people of Afghanistan.” The Afghan President said, ‘Taliban does not believe in peace. In the next six months there will be unprecedented changes and the Taliban will be pushed back. He said that Afghan security forces have been assigned a responsibility and they have the capability to defeat terrorists.
Ghani arrived by helicopter to address the extraordinary session of the House. This session was called after seeing the ground situation. “The Taliban do not believe in peace,” he said. Ghani predicted a huge change in the battlefield in the next six months that would lead to a Taliban retreat. However, he did not give its details. The Taliban captured the provincial government’s radio and TV building in Lashkar Gah, the capital of Helmand province, hours after the president’s address.
