The National Security Advisor Hamdullah Mohib on Thursday said the Taliban militants had plotted major attacks on the start of the current year to "strangulate" Kabul, but the group failed to take over a single district in the country.
In a visit to Parwan Province on Thursday, Mohib said that the Afghan security forces managed to recapture several areas which had fallen to the Taliban in the past.
“Taliban wanted to strangulate Kabul and take over several provinces but they failed in their plans," he said.
He said that Afghan people will not accept the peace in which they do not see the interests of their country.
“If the peace comes in the shape of a project or conspiracy in which our system will be disrupted, we all will retaliate against it,” added Mohib.
“We want peace, but a dignified peace, a peace which is lasting, a peace which comes on behalf of the people of Afghanistan,” said Ghulam Bahauddin Jailani, head of Parwan Provincial Council.
Mohib pledged to work together with the security institutions to improve security in some restive regions of the province.
