A Taliban delegation led by Mawlawi Shahabuddin Delawar said in Moscow that the fighters now control 85 percent of territory in Afghanistan and are capable to rule over 100 percent of the soil in a span of two weeks.

Delawar reacted to US president Biden’s remarks made on Thursday in the White House. Biden had said that Afghan National Defense and Security Forces number 350 thousand while those of the Taliban amount to 75000 only, thus the latter cannot take control over entire Afghanistan.

The senior Taliban delegation in Russia said that as agreed upon in the US-Taliban agreement, they are attacking major cities and provincial centers in Afghanistan.

The delegation is apparently visiting Russia to assure the country that they will not pose any threat to them and central Asia.

Afghan government reacted to the claim of the Taliban and addressed the Taliban to utilize the opportunity for peace and stop being puppets of Pakistan.

Spokesman of Afghanistan interior affairs ministry Tariq Arian in his tweet said that the claim of control over 85% soil is erroneous and if true why are the Taliban leaders still live out of Afghanistan.

The Taliban delegations visit Iran and Russia at a time when peace negotiations in Doha are still in sheer stalemate.
