Taliban leader Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada on Tuesday once again offered direct peace talks to the United Sates to end the decades-long conflict in Afghanistan.

Taliban leader Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada on Tuesday once again offered direct peace talks to the United Sates to end the decades-long conflict in Afghanistan.

“If the American officials truly believe in a peaceful end to the Afghan imbroglio then they must directly present themselves to the negotiation table so that this tragedy (invasion) – the destructive effects of which mainly harm the American and Afghan people – can be resolved through talks,” the Taliban leader said in his Eid message.

“The biggest mistake on part of the American officials is that they approach every problem with stubbornness. But force cannot yield results in every case,” said Hibatullah, who was appointed the Taliban new chief after a US drone killed Akhtar Mansour in May 2016.

This comes as the US has always declined the Taliban repeated calls and urges them to talk to the Afghan government,

He continued: “If Afghans’ struggle against the British and Soviet Union was deemed legitimate then our Jihad against the American occupation is also lawful and legitimate.” Daily Mail reported.

The Taliban have announced a three-day ceasefire with the Afghan forces during Eid, but the Taliban chief did not mention the ceasefire and said they would continue fight until the foreign forces quit Afghanistan.

Haibtullah lashed out at the Afghan religious scholars who recently issued an edict against the war in Afghanistan.

“My message specifically to the Ulema (religious scholars) of Afghanistan is that America and her allies have been defeated in nearly every aspect of this war, therefore, they are currently seeking support of scholars for their vested interests,” he said.
