The first vice president of Afghanistan, Amuralá Salé, has suggested the possibility of executing some Taliban who are imprisoned due to the increase in killings and attacks by insurgents despite the peace talks underway in the Qatari capital. , Doha.

Salé has argued that the main reason for the increase in these incidents is that the Taliban believe that they will be forgiven and not punished as a result of the peace process and after the release of 5,000 insurgents detained in order to start the talks.

Thus, he has stated that one of the solutions would be to carry out the execution of some detainees so that there is no sense of impunity and “the lesson is learned”, as reported by the Afghan television channel 1TV.

Salé’s statements came a day after the murder of two Supreme Court judges in the capital, Kabul, and hours before another attack on the vehicle in which an official of the Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technologies was traveling, an attack that it has been settled without victims.

The negotiating delegations of the Government and the Taliban resumed their contacts during the day on Sunday, according to Nader Naderi, one of the Executive’s negotiators, in statements collected by the Afghan television network Tolo TV. The teams agreed on the ‘roadmap’ for the process in December.

However, violence has undergone a drastic spike and the Taliban have accused the United States of violating the historic peace agreement signed on February 29, 2020 with its latest bombardments against insurgent positions in Kandahar and elsewhere in the country.

For his part, the acting US Secretary of Defense, Christopher Miller, confirmed on Friday that Washington had reduced to 2,500 the number of military personnel deployed in the country, as contemplated in the aforementioned agreement and with a view to the total withdrawal of troops from the North American country of Afghanistan.
