KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): NATOinfo-icon has urgently called on the Talibaninfo-icon to reduce violence and create conditions conducive to commence negotiations, a statement said on Friday.

In a statement the military alliance called on the Taliban to fulfill its commitments to ensure that terrorists never again find safe haven on Afghan soil.

NATO welcomed the establishment of an inclusive negotiating team to represent Afghanistaninfo-icon and called on the Taliban to enter negotiations with this team without further delay, which is considered a key element of the U.S.-Taliban agreement.

The current level of violence caused by the Taliban is not acceptable. We call urgently on the Taliban to reduce violence and create the conditions conducive to commence negotiations. NATO further calls on the Taliban to fulfill its commitments to ensure that terrorists never again find safe haven on Afghan soil.

The alliance hoped these negotiations to lead to an enduring and comprehensive peace agreement that puts an end to violence, safeguards the human rights of all Afghans, including womeninfo-icon and children, upholds the rule of law, and ensures that Afghanistan never again serves as a safe haven for terrorists.
The prospect of the start of negotiations to reach a comprehensive peace agreement in Afghanistan represents an historic opportunity to end the decades long conflict. All sides should act to urgently fulfill the commitments they have made to lower violence and work toward peace.  

NATO reaffirmed its longstanding commitment to Afghanistan and the Afghan security forces, with whom NATO and its partners have fought shoulder-to-shoulder in pursuit of security and stability. Now is the time to act in support of sustainable peace.
