KABUL (Pajhwok): Kabul on Saturday rejected the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan’s Reconstruction (SIGAR) report that the Taliban ruled 30 percent of the country’s territory.

SIGAR’s chief John F. Sopko said the Afghan government controlled 70 percent while the Taliban ruled 30 percent of the country -- the highest territorial gains for the insurgent since 2001.
