China Offers Assistance To Afghan Peace Process

China Offers Assistance To Afghan Peace Process

Over the weekend in western Farah province, at least 18 soldiers were killed when their checkpoint came under attack by Taliban insurgents, two other soldiers were wounded in the attack in the Bala Buluk district, according to defense ministry officials.

Pajhwok Afghan News reported that the Ministry of Interior's deputy spokesman Nusrat Rahimi confirmed the explosion occurred in the Qabel Bai area in Kabul's PD9 at around 8:45am. Speaking at an worldwide conference in Kabul on Wednesday he offered Taliban recognition, as a legitimate political group, and part of a proposed political process that he said could lead to talks aimed at ending more than 16 years of war. A horse was also badly injured in the blast and had to be shot dead in the street, an AFP reporter at the scene said.

"Unfortunately around 9:00 am, a auto bombing took place in (the) Qabil Bay area of Kabul", ministry spokesperson Najib Danish told AFP, giving the toll and adding that police are investigating.

However a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spokesman denied any foreign troops had been injured, while the Australian embassy said the blast had come as one of its convoys was passing by.

The blast on last Saturday took place in the vicinity of Shash Darak area of the city after a suicide bomber detonated his explosives near the security forces.

"One civilian was killed, and eleven civilians were wounded as a result of the attack".

Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani has called on the Taliban to take part in peace talks to "save the country", offering security and incentives such as passports to insurgents who join the negotiations.

The United States dared to permit itself renewed hope Thursday that the longest war in its history may be closer to a negotiated settlement, after Afghan-led talks went better than expected.

US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert made it clear that Washington is glad that Ghani used to conference to signal to the absent Taliban that "there are no preconditions for peace". After more than 16 years of war, the Afghan government is helplessly watching the Taliban spread its influence across rural areas.

Kabul remains on high alert, fearing further attacks and violence. The US, he said, has preserved its valuable military-to-military relationship with Pakistan and attempted to increase transparency and communication with influential military leaders, while pressing its serious concerns about the country's provision of sanctuary and support to militant and terrorist groups that target the US personnel and interests. American officials are also braced for more fighting in the spring.
