Kabulinfo-icon’s chief peace negotiator said he had also asked the United States and other countries with stakes in the Afghan peace parleys to help convince the Taliban to reduce violence.

He said: “It’s in the best interest of peace to encourage the Taliban (but) if ceasefire today, for example, is too heavy a word for the Taliban, let us talk together to find what can we do so that people see that there are changes in the security environmentinfo-icon.”

He believed it was time for the Taliban to demonstrate practical signs of their commitment to peace. “Why are they not giving the people a chance to breathe and to see that things are happening?”
