Taliban: Fighting will continue before talks

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said on Sunday that call on the group to stop fighting before talks was “illogical.”

In a series of tweets, Mujahid said that fighting continues as they have got no other option yet.

He said that the process of prisoner release should be completed so that intra-Afghan negotiations could begin.

“If one doesn’t want the war to continue, then why they create hurdles on path to negotiations?,” Mujahid said.

The comments come hours after Afghan presidential spokesman said that it was time for the Taliban to renounce violence and really enter into peace process.

He said that recent increase in Taliban violence has tarnished hopes of Afghans and the international community for starting talks and ensuring peace in the country.
