ISIS Claims Responsibility For Deadly Attack Aimed At Afghan Hazaras

US military ramping back up in Afghanistan with little scrutiny

"And that role has been appreciated by the government of Afghanistan", senior U.S. diplomat for South and Central Asia, Alice Wells, told a Washington audience.

"So, what we're looking for in Afghanistan is a fundamental recognition that in an insurgency, the insurgents and the government that is ruling need to engage in a conversation with one another as well as with other interested parties to that settlement".

Wells noted that it was a complicated process which can not be pre-judged but underscored its importance for the success of the stabilisation of Afghanistan.

Several other attacks against the ethnic group in recent years have been attributed to the Islamic State, touching off large protests in Kabul by Hazaras, who say too little is done to protect them and destabilising the Ghani government.

Nerve agent was used to poison X-Russian spy
Thus she commented on the attack on former Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) Colonel Sergey Skripal in Salisbury on March 4. Skripal had been "turned" by MI6 in 1995, the FSB said, and had been in contact with British agents at the Moscow embassy.

"We will consider the Taliban's view in the peace talks", he said. "We have been very consistent in this approach", Wells said.

Akbaruddin, however, said it should be clear to the armed opposition that there will be no tolerance for those who continue violence. There's a will to end this conflict.

The conference, proposed by Indonesian President Joko Widodo in January and due to be held later this month, was an effort to present "the sacred Jihad in Afghanistan ... as unlawful bloodshed", the Taliban said in a statement.

Akbaruddin said that despite the global community's efforts, those supporting the terrorists affecting Afghanistan have not been deterred. It has continued its armed push in rural pockets and periodic urban attacks, but it has put out several feelers in recent weeks, including a public letter that asked "the American people" to persuade US officials to abandon the costly 16-year-war.

The bill features Viola Desmond , a human rights icon whom you might remember from a Heritage Minute (below, in case you don't). She was required to receive cosmetology training in Montreal, Atlantic City, and one of Madam C.J.

"This is a peace offer that the US supports and is prepared to facilitate, but we can not substitute for the direct negotiations that are required between the Afghan government and the Taliban leadership", Wells said in her remarks at the US Institute of Peace. Now obviously the United States has a direct interest in the resolution of this conflict and the Taliban have frequently stated the need for all foreign troops to depart Afghanistan is a precondition for negotiations.

He said tens of thousands of Afghans are killed and injured every year in confrontations between the Taliban and government forces.

The overnight Taliban assault in northern Takhar province took place in a remote region of the district of Khwaja Ghar.
