Head of the Taliban’s political office in Doha Stanakzai Mohammad Abbas has ruled out holding negotiations with the Afghan government before a peace settlement has been reached with the Americans. He was speaking in Moscow on Friday on the sidelines of multilateral peace consultations on Afghanistan.
“This government has come to power under the shadow of the invasion and with some sort of compromise between the Americans and the political parties in Afghanistan,” he said, adding “this government does not represent the people of Afghanistan that’s why we deny always direct negotiations with them before we solve the problem with the Americans.”
The Taliban representative said that the group’s main aim is “to take these foreign forces out of Afghanistan.” The group has held talks with the American side, during which this goal was voiced, but Abbas admitted that these negotiations are still “in a very initial stage.”
