Afghanistan forces detain German fighting for Taliban

Afghanistan forces detain German fighting for Taliban”

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has offered peace talks "without preconditions" to the Taliban after 16 years of war.

The conference, held in Kabul, brought together all of Afghanistan's neighbouring States, along with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States - as well as other parties, to establish a consensus among regional and global stakeholders on the imperative for an Afghan-led peace process.

It said that the UN Mission recognizes the inclusive consultations to build a national consensus on peace conducted by the government and the High Peace Council before the conference as an important part of any national peace process, adding that the UN looks forward to the further and deeper involvement of Afghan women in all future dialogue and talks.

As previously, an increase in air strikes in the country irked not only the Afghan Taliban but also the common people and increased suspicion over the US' resolve and intention toward the peace process.

Kabul:The Afghanistan special forces have detained a German national who had been fighting along with the Taliban for nearly a year, officials said on Thursday. Mr Ghani said his government would also work to remove sanctions against Taliban leaders.

"A ceasefire should be held, the Taliban should be recognised as a political party and trust-building process should be initiated", said Ghani, AFP reported.

The Taliban have themselves twice offered to talk to the United States in recent weeks, but have ruled out talks with the Kabul government, a key sticking point that must be resolved before any talks can start.

Any enlarged role for Russian Federation may cause concern for the U.S. Last year Moscow was accused of aiding the Taliban in a bid to bog down American efforts to bring an end to the conflict.

He urged the Taliban to take part in peace talks to "save the country", offering security and incentives such as passports to militants who join the negotiations.

"As a country we are not sovereign - the Taliban want to talk to the USA and the Taliban are taking instructions from Pakistan and here we are taking instructions from the Americans", said Karzai.

Ultimately, we don't see there being a military solution to the situation in Afghanistan.

His German name is not known.

"We have launched an operation to find them", said Zia Durrani, the Kandahar police spokesman, who blamed the militant group for the attack. But that's really up to Afghanistan, but it has to be Afghan-led and Afghan-owned.
