KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The best way to reduce civilian casualties is to reduce violence, the US force in Afghanistaninfo-icon (USFOR-A) said on Friday.

“We are committed to reducing violence in accordance with the will of the Afghan people,” a spokesman for USFOR-A said.

A day earlier, the Talibaninfo-icon announced their willingness for a brief ceasefire with the United States and reducing attacks on the Afghan armed forces.

“After discussions over the past few weeks, our leadership council has agreed to a 10-day ceasefire with the US,” a Taliban leader told Pajhwok Afghan News.

On Friday, the USGOR-A official said pointless violence would not go unchecked or unanswered. The US forces tried their best to avoid unnecessary human suffering, he added.
