No military solution in Afghanistan, UN chief says on Kabul visit

No military solution in Afghanistan, UN chief says on Kabul visit

Tensions between Aghanistan and Pakistan rose after a massive auto bomb attack in Kabul on May 31, which killed 150 people.

"We have already condemned the [attacks]". They said the militant commander was inside the house as two missiles hit the property.

The incident near the embassy of Germany took place earlier on the day of 31 may after a tanker packed with explosives was detonated, leaving over 150 dead and more than 400 others wounded.

The statements ruling out any Taliban hand in the bombings have fallen on skeptical ears in Kabul.

The Haqqani network was founded by Afghan warlord Jalaluddin Haqqani and is now being run by his son Sirajuddin.

"The movement's operational capacity and logistical access to plan and execute such a bombing is beyond question".

Since the Kabul truck bombing, protesters have set up sit-in camps in at least six locations around the capital, including one near the bombing site, demanding the resignation of President Ashraf Ghani's government.

"Just landed in Kabul for talks with government and people", Guterres wrote on Twitter on June 14.

Afghan intelligence officials told VOA's Afghan service that the Taliban purposely deny involvement in most deadly attacks in Afghanistan to secure their Pakistani sponsors from further isolation. "Peace with Pakistan was our demand and this must be solved between government-and-government", Ghani said at the meeting.

Despite the increase in violence, the senior administration official said the President's national security advisers are still preparing to recommend Trump commit no more than 5,000 additional U.S. troops.

Afghan security forces have beefed up security operations against militants recently across the country.
