Zalmay Khalilzad the US secretary state’s special envoy for Afghanistan who will start another round of negation with Taliban very soon recently has written on his tweeter that the Afghan people have the right to live in peaceful atmosphere away from violence and for preventing casualties, a cease fire should be signed between Taliban and Afghan state forces, because the most rapid way for preventing casualties would be an agreement on ensuring ceasefire.
Khalilzad is asking for ceasefire in Afghanistan that the people of that country and its government consider ceasefire a factor for the growth of trust in negotiations, because of this Islamic Republic of Afghanistan considering the will of Afghan people repeatedly has suggested ceasefire.
Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has a humane feeling and strategic view about ceasefire, because it protects the life of people and prevents further destructions of the country that establishes trust and strengthens the process of peace talks.
This is Taliban don not accept ceasefire does not mean that they have an upper hand in military and political grounds, it is because of their adventurist nature.
But, the people believe until the sound of gun not become silenced, conducting talks will have no any meaning, but when ceasefire enforced the involved sides, concentrate on related issues to the people.
Ceasefire can further increase the hopes for ending the conflicts and the people expect Taliban to have the capacity and capability to surrender to peace and alongside people protect humane values.
