Comment by the Information and Press Department on the ceasefire in Afghanistan

Monday, 18 June 2018 12:10

We welcome the statement by President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani on the extension of the temporary ceasefire announced by the Government of Afghanistan on the occasion of the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

It is important that the decision to halt hostilities does not apply to international terrorist groups operating in Afghanistan, primarily ISIS.

We express hope that the new initiative of Kabul will give impetus to ending the fratricidal war on the long-suffering Afghan land and will contribute to the beginning of a peaceful dialogue and the process of national reconciliation.
