The Ministry of Interior (MoI) spokesman Najib Danish says the Afghan armed forces are committed to respect the ceasefire with the Taliban as per the instructions of President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani.

However, he warned that the Afghan forces are fully prepared to defend in the event the ceasefire was breached by the militants.

Danish made the remarks during a press conference in Kabul as he was briefing the media regarding the security arrangements during the Eid-ul-Fitr days.

He said full security measures will be in place in mosques, highways, recreational places, and Eid prayer sites and the security forces have been instructed to fully cooperate with the people during the Eid days.

Danish also urged the families to prevent their children from the use of fire crackers and other substances that could ignite fire.

This comes as the Ministry of Interior issued a statement on Tuesday, asking the security forces to take immediate actions to prevent the sale and purchase of fire crackers and other hazardous materials causing fire.

In the meantime, Danish urged the residents of the country to communicate with the security forces in the event they come across with the suspicious actions.
