Afghan Taliban 'Will Support Pakistan Against Foreign Aggression'

Afghan Taliban 'Will Support Pakistan Against Foreign Aggression'

Ghani further said that the world has heard Afghanistan's voice on counter-terrorism efforts and that the Taliban must know they can not win the war.

A suspected USA drone strike struck a compound in a northwestern tribal region along the Afghan border on Friday, killing three suspected militants and wounding two others, an army officer and two security officials said.

"The US drone fired two missiles, at least three fighters from the Afghan Taliban have been killed and two wounded", a senior government official in Kurram Agency told AFP.

United States drone attacks inside Pakistan have become infrequent over the past few years.

The Shpageeza tournament, now in its fifth season, is one of a small number of Western-style sports competitions along with Afghan Premier League football that has grown up since a US-led campaign toppled the Taliban in 2001.

In April, a suspected U.S. drone strike had killed several Taliban militants in North Waziristan close to the Afghanistan border.

"This year we have some tremendous achievements", Stanekzai said, including Afghanistan's full membership of the International Cricket Council.

The US president unveiled his administration's new strategy in Afghanistan last month.

In a statement, Zeke Johnson, a senior director of programs at Amnesty International USA, expressed his concern over the strike in Pakistan, saying "the last thing the US should be doing right now is expanding a global, secret killing program". "You (enemies) should know that Afghanistan's strategic situation has changed and you (Taliban) can not win on the battlefields", he added.

Another option being weighed by Washington, according to USA officials, is targeted sanctions against Pakistani officials with links to extremist groups such as Haqqani.

US President Donald Trump (L) greets military leaders before his speech on Afghanistan at the Fort Myer military base on August 21, 2017 in Arlington, Virginia.

He said these countries have an enormous stake in the stability and relative security of Afghanistan.
