Taliban say participants of Doha talks failed to agree on ceasefire

Doha: The delegations of the Afghan government and the Taliban movement (banned in Russia) have been unable to agree on a ceasefire during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha or release of imprisoned Taliban members, Mohammad Naeem, the spokesman for the Taliban’s political office in the Qatari capital, said after the two-day talks.

Reports about a possible Eid al-Adha ceasefire, as well as a release of 7,000 Taliban militants, have been circulating in Arab media. The holiday will begin on July 20.

“According to some media reports, a several-day ceasefire or a release of some prisoners was agreed on at the two-day high-level intra-Afghan meeting in Doha. This information does not correspond to reality. Such an agreement has not been reached,” Naeem tweeted.
