An investigative journalist warns that insecurity cannot be rooted out in Afghanistan as long as foreign forces continue their occupation of the country.

“Unless the occupation by the NATO forces ends and unless there is sustainable development in the country, the violence will continues,” said investigative journalist Andre Vltchek in a Monday interview with Press TV.

Vltchek underlined the need for negotiations between the Afghan government and Taliban and noted that Kabul needs the regional countries to facilitate such talks.

“It cannot do it on its own. It needs the important countries in the region to help [facilitate] the negotiations with the Taliban,” he said.
