Afghan president slams Taliban for wasting opportunity for peace after deadly truck blast

Kabul, Aug 25 (Sputnik) Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani on Tuesday condemned the deadly suicide bomb blast at a military base in the country’s north on Tuesday, saying the Taliban were squandering a chance to rebuild peace.
Earlier on Tuesday, a car bomb went off near a military compound in Balkh province, killing four people, including one security forces member, and injuring dozens more, according to the latest reports. The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the attack.
"President Ashraf Ghani vehemently denounced the Taliban's terrorist attack in Balkh district of Balkh province that killed and wounded a number of our innocent fellow citizens ... Taliban’s insistence to protract their meaningless war and violence will jeopardize the unprecedented opportunity created for peace," Ghani said in a statement shared by the presidential palace.
