Written by wave FM on March 9, 2021
The United States Secretary of State ANTHONY BLINKEN has made a blunt new push for United Nations-led peace effort in Afghanistan.
In a letter to the Afghan President ASHRAF GHANI, BLINKEN called for a 90-day reduction in violence and a transitional government formed from both sides.
BLINKEN also said no decision had been made about whether to stick to a planned US troop withdrawal by 1 May. He called on President GHANI to show “urgent leadership”.
