During the meeting, Abdullah pointed to the recent developments and security situation in Afghanistan and reiterated that Taliban Group are not committed to the process of peace in this country.

Taliban seek a military solution to Afghan problem. If this group seeks victory through a military solution, that would be completely wrong, Abdullah said, adding, “Given the history of the last four decades, no group in Afghanistan has been able to seize power by force.”
