Taliban Spokesman Sohail Shaheen Says US Support Is Not Needed For Action Against ISIS.
Ahead of the Doha talks, the Taliban have made it clear that they will resolve the issue of controlling the jihadist group Islamic State.
According to a foreign news agency, Taliban spokesman Sohail Shaheen said that there would be no cooperation from the United States for the operation against ISIS in Afghanistan, the Taliban themselves are fully capable of fighting ISIS.
Top Taliban officials and US envoys are holding talks in the Qatari capital, Doha. The issues under discussion include curbing extremist groups and expelling foreigners and Afghans, officials on both sides said.
It should be noted that ISIS has claimed responsibility for several terrorist acts in Afghanistan in recent weeks. A bomb blast at a mosque on Friday killed about 100 people. On the other hand, the Taliban has also launched operations against ISIS.
