Taliban intensify attacks for privileges in peace talks
KABUL (Pajhwok): After a series of bomb blasts and group assaults in Afghanistan, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) on Tuesday said the rebels had increased their attacks to seek privileges in the peace process.
“At a time when voices are raised for peace talks, terrorist groups are trying to increase attacks to get more privileges, but the Afghan nation will never bow to such pressure tactics. Our struggle for peace, stability and security of our people will continue,” he said.
The official said Afghanistan hoped regional countries would strictly fight against terrorism in order to root out the menace from the region because only Afghanistan could not defeat international terrorism alone. He said hideouts terrorists enjoyed outside the Afghanistan borders should be destroyed.
After recent attacks in Kabul, he said the MoI had ordered police to stay alert and adopt more steps for maintaining security of people and prevent terrorists from reaching their targets.
