July 30, 2021

KABUL: Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on Thursday, while speaking at a ceremony on National Flag Day at the Presidential Palace, reiterated that ‘there is no military solution to the country’s crisis.’

Addressing the Taliban, President Ghani said: ‘You will not surrender by force, we will not surrender either, so the solution is to come together.’

‘Are you committed to the national interests of Afghanistan, or to the networks? Do you want to sow the seeds of hypocrisy and destroy national settlements and foundations?’ he asked, according to international media reports.

‘Our voice is the voice of peace, and all Afghans agree on peace, a dignified and lasting peace in which the future of all is secure,’ he said.

He warned that if the Taliban continue the war, then the security forces will respond.

Ghani said that if Afghanistan becomes insecure then there will be no stability in the region.

He assured the nation that the situation in the country will change soon with the implementation of his security plan.
