SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Ex-Taliban Minister Discusses Crisis (English)
Taliban’s former finance minister, Motasim Agha Jan, said in an exclusive interview with TOLOnews that the only way to resolve the current crisis in Afghanistan was to reach a negotiated agreement between the “warring sides”, but with the intervention of the United Nations.
According to Agha Jan, all political parties in Afghanistan must take advantage of the current situation in order to ease tension and end the crisis.
Agha Jan said that parties involved in the crisis need to take national interests into consideration as well as Islamic values.
After the fall of the Taliban regime, Agha Jan was elected as the chairman of the Taliban’s political council.
However, after being seriously wounded in an attack in Karachi in Pakistan in 2010, he left the country.
