Warm welcome of Taliban cease-fire by NATO SG
One day ago Taliban announced three days’ cease-fire with Afghanistan government in Eid days. A decision that Afghan government announced 10 days’ cease-fire with the group. Now NATO secretary general has welcomed this decision of Taliban. Jens Stoltenberg has written in his twitter: “I welcome the Taliban’s response to President @Ashraf Ghani’s ceasefire proposal. This can be a step towards #Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace talks. #NATO stands with the Afghan people in their efforts for peace and reconciliation.”
This message comes in a time that Taliban fighters wrote in their message, they will not target Afghan security forces but foreign forces will be targeted by their fighters, and the war against foreign troops will be continued.
