In the wake of finalization of agreement between Americans and Taliban in Doha, ANDSF reported practical implementation of violence reduction in 5 days and said that have full readiness for this period.
Talking on plan of violence reduction, acting MoI Masoud Andarabi said, Taliban have pledged to prevent suicide attacks, explosions, rocket attacks etc during this period. ANSDF including ANP are totally ready for this stage to defend their homeland.
He added if Taliban attack ANDSF during this period, ANDSF will give them decisive response.
Addressing ANDSF commanders, Andarabi said, your resitance caused Taliban to attend negotiating table and they should know that would not succeed through war.
Violence reduction of Taliban indicates the right cause and Jihad of Afghan people and ANDSF legitimate resistance against them.
The Afghan people consider itself committed to implement violence reduction and ceasefire. Presidential spokesman Sediq Sediqi said, the Afghan government is intensively working on plan of violence reduction and is committed to implement it and for it, discussions have taken place at the level of corps commanders.
A number of civil activists and experts have requested Taliban to agree on announcement of permanent ceasefire following agreement on violence reduction. They said we consider Taliban agreement on violence reduction as a positive step to end the war and start peace talks.
Political analyst Amir Mohammad said, the Afghan people are fed up with wars and killing of their dears and welcomes plan of violence reduction. The warring factions should show their good will, accept ceasefire, give up war, find a permanent solution to end this conflict.
Haider Hemmat another political commentator said, usually Taliban reduce their attacks during cold season and resume them in spring. Now we hope they would extend violence reduction beyond one week and for unlimited period until permanent peace.
Not only the Afghan people look suspiciously to Taliban but the American authorities are not certain on Taliban pledges.
At present stage the Taliban leaders should display their influence on armed militants to implement violence reduction successfully and through this get trust of Americans and Afghanistan.
