Undeserved legitimacy given to Taliban in peace talks: Afghanistan govt

Popular News

Wahid Omar, an aide of President Ashraf Ghani, has said the failed attempts to reach peace legitimized the Taliban.

After the US-Taliban peace deal, both the US and the Taliban pledged to reduce violence in the country, but with the passage of time the commitments were not met and war has significantly increased in the country, reports Tolo News.

“The Taliban gained a legitimacy which shouldn’t have been given to them as a group,” Wahid Omar, a top aide to President Ashraf Ghani, was quoted as saying by Tolo News.

“The deal (US-Taliban agreement) increased the reputation of the Taliban,” Sayed Akbar Agha, a former Taliban commander, told the news portal.

Mohammad Naeem, a Taliban spokesman, however, said the US acted against the Doha peace agreement.

“Unfortunately they announced a war on the second day of Eid. On the third day of Eid, they again announced war, then they went to the Parliament and announced a war,” Mohammad Naeem, a Taliban spokesman, told Tolo News.

War victim Abdul Latif said the outcome of the peace talk is 'fake'.
