The former Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Thursday called on U.S. government to resume talks with the Taliban group in a bid to end the ongoing violence in Afghanistan.
Speaking during a press conference in Kabul earlier today, Karzai also called o Taliban group to negotiate with the Afghans as well.
Karzai further added that the Taliban group must know that they will not be able to rule the country by engaging in direct talks with the United States only.
Furthermore, Karzai called on Taliban group to refrain from harming civilians and stop attacks that kill civilians, stressing that the Taliban group will not defeat U.S. by harming civilians.
The U.S. President Donald Trump called off peace talks with the Taliban group on 8th of September after a series of deadly attacks in Kabul city that killed dozens including an American soldier.
Meanwhile, President Trump said last week “There are much better ways to set up a negotiation. The Taliban knows they made a big mistake, and they have no idea how to recover!”
President Trump further added “The Taliban has never been hit harder than it is being hit right now. Killing 12 people, including one great American soldier, was not a good idea.”
