Many Taliban leaders to reconcile soon: ex-comrade (Video)

Many Taliban leaders to reconcile soon: ex-comrade (Video)

Apr 11, 2013 - 14:23

KABUL (PAN): A former Taliban official on Wednesday claimed he had information that some high and low profile Taliban leaders would join soon the government-initiated peace process -- both overtly and covertly.

Maulvi Noorul Aziz, who served as the governor of northern Kunduz province during the Taliban's regime, told Pajhwok Afghan News during an exclusive interview that many Taliban fighters had no interest to continue with the armed resistance.

Aziz, who along with his 50-member group reconciled with the government two years back under the national reconciliation programme, currently serves as Kunduz Haj and Islamic Affairs Director.

He said many Taliban leaders had ceased fire after realising that the Americans had not come to Afghanistan for its occupation but to rebuild the war-devastated country.
