AT News Report-KABUL: Afghanistan’s top peace council has declared that the Taliban may be open to intra-Afghan peace dialogue.

He also informed that religious scholars from across the world will gather soon to discuss peace and proclaim war imposed by insurgents as illegal. Religious scholars from across the world, at an organizational and union level, will announce that no war is legal against Afghanistan (government),” Khpulwak added.
