“They repeated the old statements and attempted to deceive the US nation and hide the realties that they have no chance of their advancement,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in statement emailed to the media.
He said only Afghans would win the war, adding the only solution to the war was to intensify resistance against the “occupation”.
“The coming [solar year] would be worst for the Americans and their Afghan hirelings.Their killing would be increased. The US leaders would witness what they have never imagined,” the statement reads.
Meanwhile, Chief of Staff of US Army General Mark Milley has said presence of terror centers in Pakistan is a threat to war on terrorism and peace cannot be restored to Afghanistan until these centers are eliminated.
Asking for putting more pressure on Pakistan, he alleged that terrorist leaders, training and recruitment centers are there.
