Ghani invites Taliban to Kandahar to discuss peace

Kabul, Dec 19 (TIWN) Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has invited the Taliban to Kandahar province to engage in a discussion for bringing peace to the war-torn country, the media reported.

Addressing an event held in the province on Thursday, the President said that if the Taliban is willing to bring peace, they can come to Kandahar to hold talks with the negotiating team of Afghanistan government, TOLO News reported.  Ghani said that the Afghan people will not allow a further release of Taliban prisoners, as the group has not reduced violence.  "Now that they (Taliban) ask for the release of another 2,000 (prisoners), will you (people) allow their release? No. We saw that the bloodshed did not stop. They must stop the bloodshed so we can talk," the President said.
