Sediqi further added that the group has increased suicide attacks in major cities, including the capital Kabul in a bid to show their strenght.
In the meantime, Sediqi said the rate of insurgency has dropped by 45 percent across the country since the Afghan national security forces have carried out a series of successful military operations.
According to Sediqi, the Afghan security forces are currently engaged in with the Taliban militants in only six provinces which shows a considerable reduction as compared to the past where violence persisted in 22 provinces.
He also added that the Afghan intelligence department has carried out around 150 operations during the past two months, which have resulted to heavy casualties to the Taliban militants, including their senior commanders.
Sediqi said the government is working on a strategy to better face threats posed by Taliban militants which will be finalized in the near future.
