Zabihullah Mujahid, who introduces himself as Taliban’s spokesman reacted against the peace plan presented by Afghan President M. Ashraf Ghani at Geneva conference.

The Taliban spokesman in a statement released by the Voice of Jihad, claimed that the peace plan is beyond Ashraf Ghani’s power and the group will negotiate with the Americans.
“It considers talking to powerless and foreign imposed entities as a waste of time because impotent sides do not possess the capacity of making decision,” the statement read.
“During his speech, Ashraf Ghani declared setting up a negotiation team that will talk with the Islamic Emirate. He also forwarded proposals about negotiations that were beyond his capabilities,”
“The entire world understands that more than half of Afghanistan is under the control of Islamic Emirate whereas the Kabul administration is installed by the Americans and imposed on the Muslim Afghan nation,” the statement added.

This comes as president M. Ashraf Ghani unveiled his peace plan at Geneva conference and emphasised on Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace talks.
In regard to peace talks, president Ghani announced a 12-member negotiating team and its committees as part of the effort to end the 17-year war in the country.
