The leader of the resistance forces in the Afghan Panjshir, Ahmad Masood, declared his readiness to stop fighting and negotiate if the Taliban leave the territory of the province.
“The National Resistance Forces are ready to immediately stop the war to achieve lasting peace if the militants stop their attacks and military operations in Panjshir and Andarab, and hope to hold a large-scale meeting with scientists and reformers,” the agency quotes a statement published on Facebook.
In early August, the Taliban militants, against the background of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, launched an offensive against the positions of government forces and entered Kabul on August 15.
President Ashraf Ghani resigned and went into exile, and the Taliban announced that the war in the country is over, and they will decide on a new form of government soon.
The remote mountainous province of Panjshir remains the only territory of Afghanistan that the militants do not control.
The day before, the radical movement announced the seizure of the governor’s office in the administrative center of Panjshir. The militia denied this information.
