KABUL: President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani said the other day that Taliban have intensified their attacks on major cities which is in contradiction to the Doha agreement, a statement said.
The Taliban on Tuesday carried out a car bombing in northern Balkh province, which resulted in the killing of some civilians.
The president condemned the Taliban attack in Balkh and said the attacks in major cities were a violation of the Doha agreement between the group and the United States, a presidential press office statement added.
He said such violence would confront the ongoing peace efforts with obstacles. “The Taliban should renounce violence, stop the killing of Afghans and agree to face to face talks with the Afghan government because sticking to crimes and violence would result into hate from people and nothing else,” he said.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the Balkh attack in which 40 people were killed and injured.
