Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - Saudi Gazette report

WASHINGTON — US Secretary of State Antony Blinken held talks on Thursday over the phone with Afghan High Council for National Reconciliation Chairman Abdullah Abdullah.

During the talks, Blinken reiterated the US commitment to seek a just and durable political settlement that ends the war in Afghanistan.

The US secretary of state and the Afghan leader “discussed ways to accelerate peace negotiations and achieve a political settlement that is inclusive, respects the rights of all Afghans, including women and minorities, allows the Afghan people to have a say in choosing their leaders, and prevents Afghan soil from being used to threaten the United States and its allies and partners,” according to a statement from the US Department of State.

“Both leaders deplored continuing Taliban attacks, loss of innocent Afghan lives and displacement of the civilian population, and underscored the widespread international condemnation of these attacks,” the statement read.

The talks between Blinken and Abdullah take place amid worsening violence and a growing threat of Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.

Ever since the withdrawal of the US troops from Afghanistan, the Taliabn have captured large swathes of Afghan territories, chasing out the government troops.

Early this week, Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani blamed the speedy withdrawal of US-led troops for the worsening violence in his country.

On Monday, Ghani told parliament that “an imported, hasty” peace process “not only failed to bring peace but created doubt and ambiguity” among Afghans.
