Kabul, JUNE 24 – President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani called on Taliban group to accept the demands of the government and the Afghan people and renounce violence.
According to a statement released by ARG Presidential Palace, President Ghani made the call on Taliban militants following the attack on prosecutors of the Attorney General’s Office.
