The Police Chief of Kandahar Gen. Tadin Khan has reiterated no mercy to those who refuse peace, emphasizing that peace will come only when Taliban stop violence.

He made the latest remarks in a statement posted on Twitter late on Sunday evening.

#Peace will come only when the #Taliban stop the violence. I said I would show no mercy to those who refuse peace and in 24 hour our #ANDSF have killed 28 Taliban in Maiwand, Khakrez, and Spin Boldak,” Gen. Tadin Khan said.

The Afghan officials have urged the Taliban militants to stop violence in the holy month of Ramadan.

The participants of consultative peace Jirga also urged Taliban and the government last week to declare a ceasefire and prioritize peace process.

However, the Taliban group has so far refrained to stop violence despite the government announced to declare a ceasefire provided that the Taliban group takes a similar decision.
