The US peace envoy Zalmay Khalilzad on Thursday urged the Taliban to remain committed to the implementation of the US-Taliban peace agreement, warning that the rising level of violence in the country is threatening peace.

“Following several meetings General Miller and I had with the Taliban, we agreed to re-set actions by strictly adhering to implementation of all elements of the U.S.-Taliban Agreement and all commitments made,” Khalilzad wrote on Twitter.

“This means reduced numbers of operations. At present too many Afghans are dying. With the re-set, we expect that number to drop significantly,” said Khalilzad.

On the Taliban’s recent attacks, Khalilzad said: “Attacks have been on the rise in recent weeks - threatening the peace process and alarming the Afghan people and their regional and international supporters.”

Khalilzad also said: “We will do our part and will monitor implementation actively. All parties must deliver on their responsibilities. We thank our international partners for their assistance and support.”
