Taliban chief Hibatullah Akhundzada Sunday said his group was committed to a political settlement to the Afghan crisis even as the Islamist militia makes rapid military advances in the war-ravaged country.

In his message ahead of the Eid-ul-Adha festival, Akhundzada said the Taliban “strenuously favor a political settlement in the country” despite their “the military gains and advances.” EFE
