But seeking absolute power doesn’t show their willingness of peace,” said the country’s National Security Advisor blaming the militants for doing what he believes the order of their lords.

Pointing to a peace meeting expected to be held in Turkey, Mohib added that the government was ready to join any peace conference in any countries. “In the Russia Conference, all participants in their statements announced they that they don’t support the return of the Islamic Emirate,” Mohib continued.
NSA Mohib went on as saying that the Taliban have lost in politics and are no using all their means in war.
