PANJSHIR, AFGHANISTAN – AUGUST 23: The center of the Panjshir province, the only province that is out of the Taliban’s control, was recorded by journalists on Monday, Aug. 23.
The Taliban still has not been able to take control of Panjshir, which is located to the northeast of Afghanistan’s capital Kabul.
According to the local sources, the Taliban are busy in consultation for a future setup as talks continued to ensure their control over the last remaining province of Panjshir, which has not fallen to the group despite their sweeping advances nationwide.
Former chief peace broker Abdullah Abdullah, also a native Panjshir resident, has been spearheading talks between the two sides for days now.
“We met with the elders, religious scholars, representatives & commanders of Panjshir Province in my residence in Kabul. We discussed the current developments in the country, & ways of supporting peace & stability,” he tweeted on Saturday.
As the negotiations and discussions continued on the fate of the region, the city center and roads of the region resisting the Taliban were recorded by journalists.
On Aug. 15, the Taliban has taken command of the government in Kabul and controlled almost the entire country.
