Taliban accuse US of transferring Daesh terrorists from Syria, Iraq to Afghanistan

(MENAFN - Afghanistan Times) AT News Report

KABUL: The Taliban accuse the United States of transporting
fighters affiliate with Daesh terrorist group from Iraq and Syria to
Afghanistan and arming them, an allegation made amid serious talks between the
militant group and Washington over ending the 18-year long war in Afghanistan.

Mohammad Nabi Omari, a member of Taliban negotiating team said
Wednesday that Daesh is against Islam and rejects Muslims as apostates except
its own affiliates.

'Officials in Ghani government and tribal elders admit that
the United States relocates Daesh fighters from one province to another.
Taliban besieged Daesh fighters in Jawzjan province during the holy month of
Ramazan, but the government and US intelligence rescued them by helicopters and
took them to Kabul,' Omari said.

The Daesh terrorist group which first emerged in the Middle
Eastern countries of Syria and Iraq, were defeated by these countries' armies
and people and have no place now there. Omari said that the United States found
Afghanistan a good place to locate the fighters and brought them here.

Omari has told the Russia Today broadcaster that Taliban 60
per cent of the Afghan ground under control.

'Ashraf Ghani controls half of Kabul. He is the president
only by name and has no control on the provinces, while 60 per cent of Afghan
soil is under Taliban control.'

He said that Taliban first try to reach a deal with the US
through negotiations and would begin talks with Afghan government once a
timetable for the US withdrawal was prepared.
