Ghani Cautions Allies On Adopting 'Wrong Policy' For Peace

Aug 22, 2019

Kabul (Afghanistan) August 22: President Ashraf Ghani on Wednesday met with NATO's 19th Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen. Tod D. Wolters in which he warned that adopting any "wrong policy" for achieving peace will have unpleasant consequences for the country.
He said that peace and security in Afghanistan and the US are faced with threats and that there is a need to move the peace process forward with caution, the Presidential Palace said in a statement.
The statement quotes Mr. Ghani as saying that the Taliban are yet to have a will for peace and ceasefire and that the group should let Afghans know about their relations with Pakistan, drugs, al-Qaida, Daesh and dozens of other terrorist groups.
Mr. Ghani reiterated that the Taliban cannot remain in the absence of their safe havens in Pakistan.
This comes as US chief negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad has embarked on a new trip on Afghan peace in which he will resume his talks with the Taliban.
