In a statement issued after the conclusion of consultative Peace Jirga (grand assembly) in Kabul on Friday, Taliban stated that the group “is currently busy negotiating the end of occupation with the American side.”

The statement further added “After reaching an agreement with the American side during talks, the Islamic Emirate has plans of holding dialogue and solving domestic issues with the internal sides.”
