President Ashraf Ghani met with Pakistan army chief Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa and Gen. Sir Nick Carter, Britain’s Chief of the Defense Staff and Head of the British Armed Forces, in Kabul today, the Presidential Palace said.
The peace process, Afghanistan’s relations with Pakistan, Pakistan’s role in the peace process and end of violence in Afghanistan were discussed in the meeting, the Palace said.
President Ashraf Ghani in a statement on Monday instructed all Afghan forces to observe the ceasefire during three days of Eid, but he reiterated that the Taliban’s violence has no legitimacy as international troops are leaving the country.
Ghani stated that the government is aware of the announcement of the ceasefire by the Taliban, but he did not welcome it or otherwise acknowledge the gesture in his remarks.
