Afghanistan’s Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah tells Tim Sebastian that the Taliban have shown their “utter irresponsibility towards the people and towards the fate of the country.” This week though, the group have reciprocated a ceasefire offer by Kabul ahead of the Muslim festival of Eid.

In this week’s edition, DW’s Conflict Zone also finds out where Afghanistan is headed next amid reports of deteriorating human rights and security.
