Kabul: The US chargé d’affaires in Kabul, Ross Wilson, on Thursday said that US had reached to a conclusion, years ago, that war in Afghanistan was a ‘dead end’.
Wilson was giving interview to TOLOnews and said that a political solution is the best way to address the conflict.
“We came to the conclusion a number of years ago that just continued fighting was a dead end—we weren’t ultimately going to be victorious and eliminate forever and for all time the problems of Afghanistan or the problem of the Taliban,” Wilson said.
“A political solution was the right way to try to proceed,” said Wilson.
Referring to the rumors about a possible civil war in Afghanistan, Wilson said that it would not be in the interest of “any party.”
“Well, it is clear to me that civil war is not in the interest of any party, it is not in the interest of the Afghans, it is not in the interest of the Taliban, it’s even less in the interests of Afghanistan’s neighbors,” said Wilson.
He said that both the Afghans and the international community have similar concerns about the withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan.
