KABUL: Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani says intelligence estimates indicate the influx of over 10,000 jihadi fighters from Pakistan and other places into Afghanistan in the past month,  while Islamabad had failed to convince the Taliban to participate "seriously" in the peace talks.

Addressing an international conference in Uzbekistan on Friday, the president lashed out at Pakistan for aiding the Taliban and other terrorist outfits. According to the Kabul Times report, Ghani made the remarks on Friday while addressing the Central and South Asia connectivity conference held in Tashkent, with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan also in attendance.

"Contrary to repeated assurances by Prime Minister Khan and his Generals that Pakistan does not find a Taliban takeover in Afghanistan in Pakistan's interest and fell short of use of force and its power and influence to make the Taliban negotiate seriously, networks and organizations supporting the Taliban are openly celebrating the destruction of the assets and capabilities of the Afghan people and State," Ghani said. The President said that Afghanistan was ready to counter the Taliban and their supporters as long as they realise that a political solution is the only way forward.
