AAN’s country director on the meaning of the latest wave of Taleban attacks:

“I don’t think there is any change in strategy,” said Kate Clark, country director for the Afghan Analysts Network in Kabul. “Mansour has largely been focussed on the military struggle for years, there’s been precious little on the peace front.”

 

(…) “I don’t think this is a turning point, I fear this is normal,” said Clark.
