Afghan president says he will oppose peace deal without his governmentGhani’s government has so far been shut out of the evolving peace talks between Taliban negotiators and U.S. envoys to end more than 17 years of war, with the hardline Islamist movement branding his government as a U.S. puppet. “At the end of any peace deal, the decision-maker will be the government of Afghanistan,” Ghani told TOLO News, the country’s largest private television station. “No power in the country can dissolve the government,” he said, adding that he was ready to “stand and defend our country”.
