In exchange for a peace accord, the Taliban demands the removal of the Afghan President.

The Taliban claim they wouldn't want to have a monopoly on power, although they believe that there would be no reconciliation in Afghanistan till President Ashraf Ghani is ousted and a new negotiated administration is formed in Kabul. Suhail Shaheen, a Taliban spokesperson who used to be a part of the group's negotiation team, set out the militants' position on what will happen here in a nation on the verge of collapse in a conversation with The Associated Press. As the final US and NATO troops leave Afghanistan,

the Taliban have quickly gained land, acquired important security checkpoints, and are menacing a number of main cities.“I want to make it clear that we do not believe in the monopoly of power because any governments who (sought) to monopolise power in Afghanistan in the past, were not successful governments,” said Shaheen, apparently including the Taliban's own five-year rule in that assessment. “So, we do not want to repeat that same formula.”Gen.

Mark Milley, the top US military official, said last week at a Pentagon news briefing that the Taliban had "strategic momentum" and that a total Taliban control is not ruled out. However, he stated that it is not unavoidable. He stated, "I don't believe the end game has been written yet."When a unified administration appropriate to all sides of the conflict is formed in Kabul and Ghani's government is removed, Shaheen believes the Taliban will lay tail between their legs.According to Shaheen, journalists, particularly those working for Western media outlets, have very little to dread from a Taliban-led administration.“We have not issued letters to journalists (threatening them), especially to those who are working for foreign media outlets. They can continue their work even in the future,” he said.
