Taliban Leader Shows Concern over Peace Talks with US

KABUL – The leader of the Taliban has raised doubts and concerns about peace talks with the United States.

Mullah Haibatullah on Thursday expressed uncertainty over the discussions to put an end to nearly two decades of war in Afghanistan amid an increase in attacks.

“The increasing blind and brutal bombings by America during the negotiation process, attacks on civilian areas and the contradictory statements by your military and political officials has generated a cloud of uncertainty about this process and raised doubts about your intentions,” Haibatullah said in a message ahead of the Eid al-Adha holiday.

“Bilateral trust is the foundation of a successful negotiations process therefore it is imperative that such negative actions are ceased.”

Taliban and the US representatives are currently participating in the eighth round of peace talks to negotiate the withdrawal of international troops.

The Taliban leader said that these talks were being handled with utmost sincerity.

He expressed his desire for measures towards a resolution that could put an end to the war.

“The failure of numerous military strategies over the past eighteen years are enough to focus on finding a peaceful pathway forward,” Haibatullah said.

The United Nations has denounced the rise in the number of attacks committed by the Taliban as well as international and Afghan troops as the peace talks were underway and said that such attacks could be used as leverage in the discussions.

The most recent took place on Wednesday in Kabul, when a vehicle laden with explosives exploded near a police checkpoint.

The assault was carried out by the Taliban and killed 14 people with 145 others injured.
