Monday, 04/15/2024

Ahmad Massoud, the leader of the National Resistance Front (NRF), stated on Sunday that any interaction with the Taliban over the past three years has resulted in heightened oppression of the Afghan people.

In a virtual meeting, Massoud noted, "With each passing day, our unity strengthens, and the Taliban's influence diminishes."

The session, which was held to mark the first anniversary of the death of Akmal Amir, a commander of the Afghanistan Freedom Front, and his six comrades, emphasised on the ongoing resistance against the Taliban.

During the meeting, Massoud underscored the commitment and unity among the resistance fronts, political parties, and the Afghan populace, remarking, "Significant efforts towards cohesion and unity have been made since the beginning of this year."

He highlighted that victory over the Taliban could be achieved internally, without foreign aid, through the collective effort of the Afghan people.

Massoud also pointed out that despite nearly three years of efforts to reach a political resolution, the Taliban have consistently rejected these overtures.

Despite the Taliban's efforts to sow discord, Massoud observed that the resistance fronts have grown more unified.

He concluded by affirming that these fronts will persist in their efforts, become more united and stronger than ever before.
