Afghanistan government proposes sharing of power with Taliban

The Afghanistan government has proposed a power-sharing plan to the Taliban to put an end to the escalating violence in the country. 

The top Afghan government source has told Al Jazeera that the offer was presented to the Taliban indirectly through Qatar, which hosts the Taliban’s political office and the continuing Afghan peace talks.

The development, which was also reported in Afghanistan’s local media on Thursday, came as the armed group seized Ghazni, the 10th provincial capital to be captured in a week.

However, the presidential palace in Kabul did not confirm the development, saying there has been no change in its plan while the peace talks are being held in Qatar’s capital, Doha.
