US Embassy Chargé d’Affaires Ross Wilson says the United States is not advocating an interim government in Afghanistan.
“We have not advocated, and the United States is not advocating, an interim government. The outcomes of Afghanistan peace negotiations are up to Afghans and we believe those outcomes should reflect the wishes and aspirations of the Afghan people,” Chargé d’Affaires Ross Wilson twitted on Wednesday afternoon.
According to him, The United States is committed to bringing about an end to the conflict in Afghanistan through a political settlement that ensures this country remains sovereign, unified and democratic, is at peace with itself and its neighbors and can preserve gains made over the last 19 years.
“Ambassador Khalilzad and I have talked and will continue to talk with Afghans about the need to accelerate the talks in Doha and solicited from those we have met their ideas, as well as their concerns,” he added.
The remarks come as reports were circulating on some media outlets, saying that US Envoy Zalmay Khalilzad in his trip to Kabul has proposed the establishment of an interim government.
