Taliban Still Not Ready to Negotiate with Afghan Govt

KABUL – Taliban group has recently vowed that talks with the Afghan side will begin after the announcement of withdrawal timetable of foreign troops in the presence of international witnesses.
However, the group stressed that it will not negotiate with Kabul as a government.
“Talks with the Afghan side will begin after the announcement of a withdrawal timetable for foreign troops in the presence of international witnesses, but not with the Kabul administration as a government,” said Taliban spokesperson, Suhail Shaheen, on Monday.
US – Taliban peace talks in Doha, Qatar entered its third day on Monday as the group is pushing to rewrite a draft agreement.
“We are working to rewrite the draft agreement and incorporate it in clauses that have been agreed upon,” Suhail Shaheen said Sunday.
Shaheen said the talks are “not finished yet.”
Taliban delegation is led by Mullah Baradar and the US side by US special representative on the Afghan peace process Zalmay Khalilzad since last Saturday.
Sibghatullah Ahmadi, a spokesman for Afghan Foreign Ministry told reporters Sunday that talks between the Afghan government and Taliban will take place in the coming weeks.
According to him, Germany guarantees intra-Afghan talks.
However, violence and suicide attacks have been levelled up since the seventh round of talks between the US and Taliban launched in Doha. In the latest one, the Taliban stormed a government entity on Monday morning with a car bomb, sending at least 70 civilians to local hospitals.
