CAIRO, August 9  — The Taliban movement is warning the United States against any further interference in the Afghan internal affairs, reported Sputnik.

“We are warning against the US interference in Afghanistan,” a spokesperson for the Taliban Political Office told Al Jazeera broadcaster, stressing that no intra-Afghan ceasefire had been reached.

He also accused the Afghan government of escalating the tensions in the country by launching operations in several provinces.

Afghanistan is seeing a spike in violence now as the Taliban have stepped up their offensive after international troops started a gradual withdrawal from the country, scheduled to be completed by September 11. The pullout was stipulated in the agreement the Taliban and the United States signed in Doha in February 2020.
