The Taliban announced there would not be peace in Afghanistan until a new government has been formed and President Ashraf Ghani removed from power. In an interview this week, a Taliban spokesman said the group would lay down their weapons when a new government has been acceptable to all sides for negotiation.

The group said they did not believe in a monopolization of power and asserted this strategy had never led to a prosperous ruling body.

“I want to make it clear that we do not believe in the monopoly of power because any government who wants to monopolize power in Afghanistan in the past, they were not successful governments,” Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen explained. “So, we do not want to repeat that failed formula.”
