No intention of ending hostilities before intra-Afghan talks: Taliban

Kabul, Jul 12 (UNI) The Taliban are not going to stop hostilities before the intra-Afghan talks, viewing any calls for a ceasefire in absence of negotiations as "illogical," the radical movement announced on Sunday.
''Our stance - Implementation of Doha Agreement & start of intra-Afghan negotiations are necessary so we can work towards deescalation & end of war. If anyone seeks ceasefire before talks then such is illogical. War is raging precisely b/c we have yet to find an alternative," Taliban Spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
He further accused the Afghan government of creating "obstacles" in the negotiation process.
"The prisoner exchange process must be completed and intra-Afghan negotiations launched immediately. This is the most correct and reasonable path towards a resolution," TOLOnews qoued Mujahid as saying.
Though the United States and the Taliban signed the peace deal in late February, clashes between the government forces and the Taliban continue unabated. Direct intra-Afghan talks were initially scheduled to commence in March, but were pushed back due to disagreements over the mutual release of prisoners.
