US Must Refrain from ‘Further  Demands’ in Talks: Taliban

DOHA - While the talks between the US and the Taliban continue in Doha, the Taliban meanwhile insisted that the US take responsibility for delays in the peace negotiation talks.
On February 6, sources familiar with the talks said that the United States had recently made "several new demands" with the reduction in violence plan.
One of the demands, according to these sources, is that the reduction in violence should be long-term.
“The recent days and weeks have witnessed demands of peace and end of occupation continuously echoing from every corner of the country. The gathering by politicians, political parties and all other strata of society are calling on America to sign the peaceful resolution agreement and refrain from further demands, reservations and excuses,” a statement issued by the Taliban reads.
Meanwhile, the Afghan government has reiterated the call for the Taliban to engage in a "realistic" peace process.
“The Taliban should denounce war and violence and endorse a real peace process,” said Durani Waziri, deputy spokesman for President Ashraf Ghani. (TOLO NEWS)
