AAN’s Ali Yawar Adeli is quoted in this news item as saying, about demands from within the Afghan government process at US president-elect Joe Biden’s address to ‘review’ the peace process with the Taleban:

“There has been no articulation on the part of the government as to how it wants the process to be reviewed,” says Ali Adili, a researcher at the Afghanistan Analysts Network, an independent think tank in Kabul.

“But it might want the new U.S. administration to support its call for a cease-fire, the talks to proceed on the government’s terms, and to come down hard on the Taliban in the face of its intensification of violence,” he adds.
