War-weary Afghans See Little Voice in Their Country's Fate

War-weary Afghans See Little Voice in Their Country's Fate

Sunday, 01 September 2019 06:38 AM

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — For almost a year, Afghanistan's more than 30 million people have been in the awkward position of waiting as a United States envoy and the Taliban negotiate their country's fate.

An agreement on ending America's longest war, which the U.S. once hoped to reach by Sunday, could set a timeline for U.S. troops' withdrawal but also nudge aside this month's presidential election and open the way for a Taliban return to power. The militants continue attacks, invading a major city, Kunduz, on Saturday and Puli Khumri city on Sunday.

Without a say in their future, Afghans' frustration is clear. "We don't know what is going on but we are just so tired," one says.

A new television ad shows residents of all 34 provinces holding up signs that say "Peace."
