Kabul (IP) - The first vice president of Afghanistan, noting that a historic opportunity for unity has been created in the country, stressed that the Taliban would never control and rule Afghanistan.

Iran PressAsia: In his latest tweet released on Sunday, First Vice President of Afghanistan Amrullah Saleh said: "I see a great & historic opportunity for unity.”

He added: "Every single community from all corners of the country asks Kabul for deployment of the army & commandos. This shows thirst for institutions & rule of law as people reject factionalism.”

In recent months, however, the Taliban have stepped up their attacks in various provinces, gaining control over nearly 40 districts in Afghanistan.
