Taliban accuses US and its allies of violating agreement

The Taliban militant group on Sunday accused the United States and its allies of violating an agreement signed over a month ago in Doha, the capital of Qatar.
The US military in Afghanistan rejected the Taliban’s claim.
In a statement, Taliban lists the alleged violations: 5,000 prisoners of the group not freed, attacks on Taliban bases, and continued raids and airstrikes against them by US and Afghan forces.
Taliban warns that such actions could harm the deal and increase violence by the militants.
“We are seriously asking the Americans to abide by the contents of the agreement and to alert their allies to fully abide by the agreement,” the Taliban statement reads.
Taliban claims that it has remained committed to the agreement, despite having the right to attack any outpost until the parties agree a ceasefire.
The group says its has only conducted attacks in rural areas, a claim rejected by government officials.
The US military said it had upheld the military terms of the agreement and that Taliban’s assertions were “baseless”.
