Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani has offered the Taliban, on Sunday, the possibility of opening an office in Afghan but however, Ghani’s proposal was swiftly refused by a small group of the Taliban that was determined to have its government out from accelerating Afghan peace talks.

According to Reuters news reports, Ghani had expressed alarm over the Taliban for shutting his administration out of peace negotiations with Washington as well as Russia recent talks with the Afghan opposition politicians, and has also repeated his offers to provide the group with a secure official address in order to aid future diplomacy between both the sides.

During his visit to the province of Nangarhar, situated along with the border of Pakistan, Ghani said, “If the Taliban want an office, I will give it to them in Kabul, Nangarhar or Kandahar by tomorrow. We will bring lasting and honorable peace to the country.”

Nangarhar was considered as a stronghold of the Taliban where the hardline Islamist movement contests and controls districts across half of the nation for the last 17 years since they were all toppled from powers.

Last week, the Taliban officials stressed the importance of an office along with several demands which included removal of travel bans over Taliban members as well as removal of Western sanctions over there, prisoners’ releases and also an end to “propaganda” against the Taliban group.

On Sunday, Taliban spokesperson Sohail Shahin said Ghani was attempting to harm the Afghan peace efforts with his latest offer.

Shahin said, “Our demand about having an official political office is clear, we want that our office in Doha is recognized by the international community and the United Nations.”

He added, “By this, Ghani is trying to change the topic and harm the on-going peace efforts.”
