The Taliban Supreme Leader Mullah Hebatullah Akhundzada has invited US to talks to ‘Reach Understandingí for ending the ongoing war in Afghanistan.
Akhundzada made the remarks in his statement issued ahead of Eid Al-Adha.
He said the Taliban group still emphasizes on the logic of understanding and reasoning and invites the US to talks rather than using force.
Akhundzada further added that the only way to ensure a complete and total end to the ongoing war is the end of the occupation of Afghanistan.
He went to claim that the current conflict has links with the occupation of Afghanistan by US and that the Taliban group has been emphasizing on direct talks with the US to end the war.
This comes as efforts are underway to start intra-Afghan and Afghan-led peace talks among the Taliban and the Afghan government.
However, the Taliban group has repeatedly rejected to launch talks with the Afghanistanian government and emphasize on direct talks with the United States.
This comes despite President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani offered the recognition of the Taliban group as a political movement late in February this year in a bid to pave the way for the revival of peace talks.
