National Security Adviser Hanif Atmar said Wednesday that the militant groups pursuing violence would face onslaught by the security forces, insisting that the ongoing reconciliation efforts is the best option for the anti-government armed militant groups to give up violence.
Atmar further added that the foreign insurgents waging violence against the Afghan people will not be part of the reconciliation process.
In his remarks during the delivery of Russia’s military aid to the Afghan security forces, Atmar said foreign insurgents including Al-Qaeda and other terror networks are fighting in the country besides the insurgency led by the Afghan Taliban militants.
Atmar further added that the Afghan security forces will be equipped and the process will continue so that the military options can be used to eliminate the menace of terror by the foreigners.
Meanwhile, Atmar insisted that the government of Afghanistan will continue with its efforts to put an end to the ongoing violence led by the Afghan militant groups.
He also praised the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) for their devotion and sacrifices, saying the government and elders of the country will always remember them.
The plane carrying 10,000 Ak-47 assault rifles from Russia arrived to capital Kabul this morning.
The delivery of the assault rifles is part of Russia’s support to bolster the capabilities of the Afghan security forces to fight the menace of terrorism.
Russian President’s special envoy for Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov said late in December last year “Russia has been consistently pursuing the policy of providing comprehensive assistance to Afghanistan in the establishment of a peaceful, independent, stable and self-sufficient state, free from terrorism and drugs.”
The Afghan government has stepped up efforts to attract the regional as well as global support to equip the Afghan national security forces.
