Tolo News: Ahmad Zia Massoud, President Ashraf Ghani’s Special Representative on Reform and Good Governance, in an interview with TOLO news said that there are certain circles that do not want Taliban to be suppressed in military operations.
Massoud said that these circles in collusion with the Taliban do not let the security forces move from a defensive position to an offensive one.
Meanwhile the Special Representative on Reform and Good Governance criticized the government over the lack of strategy to fight terrorism and said that the National Security Council has ordered the war commanders to stay in a defensive position and not take offensive positions to suppress terrorists.
“At the moment particular circles inside the government exist that are in collusion with the Taliban and they are not in favor that the Taliban should be suppressed through military operations,” said Massoud.
He warned that if the government fails to manage the situation the Jihadi councils across the country will take action. Click here for more (external link).
