Taliban refute any talks for extension of US presence

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Zabīh Allah Mujāhid: “Clarification Regarding The Ongoing Negotiations Process”

As the Afghans begin inching closer towards peace, propaganda by the anti-peace crowd is similarly increasing along with baseless reports regarding this process.

No talks have been held in the meetings regarding an interim-government and elections nor has the US side proposed anything regarding staying in Afghanistan for four or five more years.

The reality of the matter is that current talks have solely revolved around withdrawal of foreign forces and the nature of this pullout as well as nature of assurances regarding future Afghanistan. Any other reports and rumors in this regard are fabrications.
