    US ready to discuss role of international troops with Taliban: Pompeo

    [​IMG]

    WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that the Trump administration is ready to discuss with the Taliban the role of US and international forces in Afghanistan if they participate in peace talks.

    Encouraged by the pictures of Taliban rebels and Afghan soldiers saying Eid prayers side by side, the top US diplomat also offered to work with the Afghan government and the Taliban to end the 17-year-old war.

    “As President Ashraf Ghani emphasised in his statement to the Afghan people, peace talks by necessity would include a discussion of the role of international actors and forces,” said Pompeo while referring to a recent statement by the Afghan leader.

    “The United States is prepared to support, facilitate, and participate in these discussions.”

    The Taliban demand the withdrawal of international forces from Afghanistan, insisting that there can be no peace as long as there are foreign forces on the Afghan soil.

    The US diplomat, however, emphasised that all talks must include the Afghan government.

    Last week, Taliban leader Hibatullah Akhunzada urged Washington to hold direct talks with the Taliban leadership, bypassing the government in Kabul.

    “The United States stands ready to work with the Afghan government, the Taliban, and all the people of Afghanistan to reach a peace agreement and political settlement that brings a permanent end to this war,” said Pompeo in a message issued after Eid holidays.

    The statement makes it clear that Washington has no intention to abandon the setup in Kabul in which it has invested heavily and has lost more than 2,000 US soldiers and contractors in defending it.

    Last week, the Taliban accepted an offer by President Ghani to stop fighting for seven days to allow all Afghans to celebrate Eid in peace.

    The acceptance led to the first-ever ceasefire in 17 years and media reports from Kabul and other Afghan cities noted that the government allowed the rebels to return to their families to celebrate the festival.

    The Taliban reportedly just beat ISIS so badly that more than 200 fighters surrendered to the Afghan government...

    [​IMG]

    About 200 to 250 ISIS fighters turned themselves into the Afghan government on Wednesday after a fierce two-day battle against the Taliban in the northern province of Jawzjan.

    Eight Taliban and six ISIS fighters were also killed in the battle, and 128 ISIS fighters surrendered to the Taliban as well.

    The surrender signals ISIS' defeat in northern Afghanistan, largely leaving only their stronghold in the southern province of Nangarhar.

    Oh that news just made my day!!! Afghan Pukhtuns have delivered a resounding message to those who clandestinely worked to transport ISIS into Afghanistan. And that message is, "take your pathetic, diseased bunch of psychos back, before we slaughter every last one of them!!!"

    Pakistan, China and Russia must work together to encourage the Afghan government to come to the table and hold talks with Afghan Tribal Pukhtuns. Form a coalition government, establish peace throughout Afghanistan and then tell the Americans politely, yet firmly, to go back to where they came from.

    Afghanistan — In one of the most devastating Taliban assassination strikes of the war, the entire top leadership of Kandahar Province was wiped out on Thursday in an attack that missed the top American and NATO Commander Gen. Austin S. Miller.

    The gunfire in Kandahar City killed afghan warlord Gen. Abdul Raziq , as well as the provincial #Governor and NDS Station head, and wounded two Americans.

    The Taliban also sent a clear message. They cannot recognize the Afghan government and will not participate and will do all in there power to attack it and any function of it.

    The Ground reality is very clear, US & US/EU back Afghan forces lost their influence in more than 80% of Afghanistan, forget control.

    They even can't fully control Kabul's RED zone.
