Afghan President Ashraf Ghani urges Taliban to join peace process, help stabilise country

Kabul: Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani on Sunday again urged the Taliban militants to give up fighting and join the peace and reconciliation process.

"If you are Afghans you should join the peace process to help stabilise the country," Ghani said after performing Eid prayers at the Presidential Palace.

The president also warned the Taliban fighters that "you (Taliban) don't have more time and your supporters are alone and you will also be alone", reports Xinhua news agency.
