In Badakhshan, 40 Taliban insurgents join peace process

Jan 09, 2018 - 15:34

FAIZABAD (Pajhwok): Forty Taliban militants have joined the reconciliation process in northeastern Badakhshan province, an official said on Tuesday.

Provincial police spokesman Sanaullah Roohani told Pajhwok Afghan News the insurgents joined the peace process in Argo district on Monday.

Clearing operations by security forces prompted the rebels to renounce violence, he said, adding they had also surrounded weapons. Local elders also played a crucial role in this regard.

The surrendering Taliban, who returned to normal life, would be welcomed at a ceremony soon, the police spokesman concluded.
