To end war, Ghani offers to recognise Taliban

To end war, Ghani offers to recognise Taliban”

Ghani, speaking at the launch of a US -backed peace conference in the Afghan capital, said the group, which is not attending the event, would be recognized as a legitimate political party.

Officials said Pakistan had been stressing the need for unconditional talks with the Taliban for many months.

Just last month, US President Donald Trump said the White House was not ready to talk with the Taliban , citing the terror group's continued use of violence.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hu Chunying, in a press briefing, said China has always supported Afghanistan in its process of a broad-based inclusive political reconciliation.

The Kabul Process meeting is ailed at arriving at a plan for peace in Afghanistan.

The Taliban also said in the statement that the group made it clear to the USA in its recent letter that "war is not our choice, rather it has been imposed upon us. The fact that the meeting is happening is something that is really impressive, and we look forward to being a part of that meeting", she added.

Gereshk police chief Ismail Khplwak said the man was the "military adviser of Mullah Nasir", commander of the Taliban's elite "Red Unit" in Helmand.

Pakistan blamed elements within the Afghan government for the collapse of the peace process.

The city is set to host the Kabul Process Conference, which would see the participation of almost 23 countries like India and Pakistan and various worldwide bodies like the European Union (EU), the United Nations (UN) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO).

At the 2nd Kabul Process Conference on Wednesday, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said he was willing to recognize the Taliban as a political group if it recognized the Afghan government and respected Afghan laws.

Representatives from about two dozen countries, including the USA and Pakistan, as well as the European Union, United Nations and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, attended the meeting, during which Afghan officials said they would present a plan for a better structured peace and security process.

But - unlike with global jihadist groups such as the Islamic State group or Al-Qaeda - citizens of Western nations are nearly unknown among the Taliban ranks, with most foreigners hailing from Pakistan, Central Asia or Arab nations.

It was unclear whether they would be prepared to shift their stance, despite growing worldwide pressure.

Still, Petr Topychkanov, a senior researcher at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, said Russian Federation worries about the US presence in Afghanistan.

"The Taliban show awareness of these contextual shifts and seem to be engaged in a debate on the implications of acts of violence for their future", he said.

The apparent openness to negotiations is unusual for the militant group, which has repeatedly stated that it will not enter talks until foreign troops leave the country.

While the Kremlin denies arming the group, Russian Federation wants to deny the USA another permanent base near its borders and supports the Taliban's demand for foreign troops to withdraw from Afghanistan.
