In an article before the background of recent terrorist attacks in Afghanistan and the discussion about the pros and cons of negotiations with the Taleban, AAN’s Kate Clark is quoted:

Kate Clark, a senior researcher at Kabul-based Afghanistan Analysts Network, said Ghani “needs to have a government before he could start reaching out for reconciliation. He needs to get the appointments sorted out: who is the defense minister, who is the head of the NDS [National Directorate of Security], who is the minister of interior, who are the leading army commanders and the police commanders. You can’t really do much until you have got a Cabinet together.”
