KABUL (Pajhwok): The national security adviser (NSA) has accused the Taliban of showing no interest in bringing peace and stability to the country.

The insurgent movement was intent upon perpetuating chaos and instability in Afghanistan, Hamdullah Mohib told journalists here on Saturday.

He called the militant group an aggressive force that was being controlled by outsiders. “They just want to grab full power — nothing else.”

Mohib claimed the fighters were out to derail the republican system to be able to take control of the country, but the world at large was not ready to recognise a Taliban regime or their system of governance, the NSA added.

Despite calls from Afghans and the global fraternity, the advisor said, the Taliban remained unwilling to reduce the high levels of violence.

The Afghan security forces and civilians had suffered heavy casualties this winter, compared to the past, the top security official acknowledged.
