Islamabad:

massive fight between Afghan Army and TalibanPakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the terrorist group will not talk to the Afghan government as long as Ashraf Ghani remains the country’s president.

Talking to foreign journalists in Islamabad, Imran Khan said that in the current situation, political settlement is looking difficult.

Pakistan’s The News International quoted Imran Khan as saying, “I tried to persuade the Taliban three to four months ago, when they came here.”

The condition is that as long as Ashraf Ghani is there, we (the Taliban) are not going to talk to the Afghan government.

The Afghan government has been critical of Islamabad for increasing instability in the region as Kabul believes that Pakistan aids the Taliban in escalating violence in Afghanistan.

Recently, Afghan people started a social media campaign against Pakistan, blaming them for the deteriorating condition of the country.

Due to the increasing violence in the country by the Taliban, the situation is worsening as the terrorist group is looting people and killing civilians after capturing many areas from the government.

The Taliban intensified their offensive against Afghan forces soon after US forces began withdrawing large numbers of Afghanistan following the signing of a peace deal between Washington and the Taliban in February last year.
