Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and Taliban leader Mullah Haibatullah have exchanged messages on the occasion of Eid al-Adha feast. While the Taliban have agreed to a three-day ceasefire, the government wants the militant group to approve a lasting truce and stop violence in the country.

The Afghan people have also welcomed the move by the Taliban, but many believe a temporary ceasefire is not the solution to the conflict in Afghanistan.
