US welcome inclusive govt in Kabul, stress over intra-Afghan talks

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): US Acting Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs Alice Wells has welcomed the formation of an inclusive government by President Ghani and Abdullah and hoped for the rapid implementation of their agreement and immediate steps to reach and intra-Afghan negotiation.

Addressing an online press conference Wells said: “After over a year of direct talks led by Ambassador Khalilzad with the Talibaninfo-icon, we signed a U.S.-Taliban agreement in February in which the Taliban committed that Afghanistaninfo-icon will never again be a base for international terrorism.” 

“Now, the United States is upholding its end of this commitment by bringing troops home while continuing to closely watch the Taliban’s actions and respond when necessary to defend Afghan Security Forces.” 

Progress to the next phase of the political negotiations has been difficult.  

“The level of violence is unacceptable, and it’s the responsibility of the Taliban to significantly reduce that violence,” she said. 

The Afghan Government and the Taliban should combine forces both against COVID-19 and the other terrorist groups like ISIS-Khorasan, whose ruthless and evil attacks we tragically saw last week.
