Taliban rule out cease-fire until it is agreed in talks
KABUL: The Taliban have rejected calls for a truce before the long-awaited talks with the government get underway. They said that the possibility of a cease-fire could be debated only during the talks. “When our prisoners are released, we will be ready for the talks,” Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, told Arab News on Tuesday. “A cease-fire or reduction of violence can be among the items in the agenda of the talks,” he said.
