Ready To Suppress Taliban In North: Dostum

The First Vice President Gen. Abdul Rashid Dostum on Thursday said he is ready to defeat the Taliban within six months if the Afghan government and the US provide him the chance. 
 
Speaking in a video conference in Kabul, Mr. Dostum said he has already provided his military plan for defeating the Taliban offshoots in the northern parts of the country with the Americans, the Afghan government and NATO. 
 
“I asked the president, the national security council, the US, NATO and our international friends to come and hear my plan and implement it. Neither there is a need for your ground forces nor other resources. Come and test us for six months. I don’t make this claim without any calculation,” Mr. Dostum said as the embattled Afghan security forces are tackling a rising Taliban insurgency in multiple fronts in the north. 
 
Mr. Dostum who believes that the US is facing a deadlock in the war with the Taliban suggested that any troop withdrawal from the country should be carried out in a ‘dignified” way. 
 
“We will tackle the Taliban. We have the ability to defeat the Taliban on condition that the NATO, US, and president of Afghanistan trust us. We are not going to disintegrate the north,” Mr. Dostum said. “We will not create militias. We will help the US as we did in 2001 to get out of this deadlock so that it can leave Afghanistan in a dignified way and victorious.”
 
Mr. Dostum has persistently criticized President Ashraf Ghani for not hearing his military plan to defeat the Taliban.
