Kabul, 17 July. Husamuddin Shams, the provincial governor of Afghanistan's western province of Badghis, has claimed that he has reached an indefinite ceasefire agreement with the Taliban.

This step has been taken at a time when the Taliban has taken complete control of all the districts of Badghis province.

The governor of the province, Husamuddin Shams, said that 10 tribal elders had taken responsibility for the ceasefire. For this, he first spoke with the Taliban and after that with the local government. After that both sides agreed to a ceasefire agreement.

Shams said the Taliban had made an agreement with tribal elders to move out of Badghis' capital, Kala-i-Navi. However, a Taliban spokesman has said that he has not agreed to the ceasefire, but has evacuated Kala-i-Navi to avoid civilian casualties.

Noder Nadiri, a senior Afghan government official in Kabul, says security forces are working to oust the Taliban and retake 190 districts.
