KABUL: Taliban will never be able to take or rule Afghanistan, said First Vice President Amrullah Saleh in a tweet yesterday.


He tweeted, “I see a great and historic opportunity for unity. Every single community from all corners of the country asks Kabul for the deployment of the army & commandos. This shows thirst for institutions & rule of law as people reject factionalism. Talibs won’t be able to take Afghanistan or rule. Never.”


Similarly, the Acting Defense Minister, General Bismillah Muhammadi, assured the frontline forces in Maidan Wardak that the Taliban cannot win through their military offenses and stated, “War is not the solution. If it was a solution, it would have shown its results in the last 20 years.”


This is amid a concerning increase in violence across all of Afghanistan’s provinces.


Many fear a military takeover by the Taliban given the intensity of fighting and continued offenses by the Taliban.
