According to the Minister of Defense of Afghanistan, Asadullah Khalid, the security forces of the country over the past few weeks adhere to the tactics of “active defense”, “to give a chance to the peace process.” “We still hope for a transition to a complete ceasefire as soon as possible, but at the same time, Afghan forces are fully prepared to defend themselves and the people,” the newspaper quoted the minister as saying.
