“Our fighters will never agree to an extension,” a Taliban spokesman said.
“NATO, America and all parties have come to the conclusion that if they want to overcome the current crisis, the only good solution is to implement the signed agreements,” he added.
“If, God forbid, the agreement is broken, then, of course, the Afghan people will defend themselves, as they have done for the last 20 years,” Mujahideen warned.
However, the Taliban will only make a decision in May if international forces remain in Afghanistan at the time, a Taliban spokesman said.
“If the diplomatic route is closed, there will be no other way than a war route,” he said.
Mujahide explained the stalled peace talks through consultations within the Taliban.
“We have basically not left the talks and we are committed to continuing the talks,” the spokesman explained.
The Mujahideen tried to justify a delay in the talks for several days, explaining that “the next talks would be strengthened”.
In February 2020, US and Taliban representatives signed a peace agreement in Qatar.
Under the agreement, the Taliban were to stop attacks on US forces, drastically reduce the level of violence in Afghanistan and enter into dialogue with the Afghan government.
The United States undertook to reduce its armed contingent in Afghanistan first, as well as to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan within 14 months, together with the Allies.
NATO is considering a possible extension of this export, fearing that if the export takes place too soon, the Taliban may seize power.
