ANI  |  Kabul [Afghanistan] 

A splinter group of the in has said that it is ready to end fighting if the country guarantees the exit of the foreign troops.

The group led by Mullah Mohammad Rasool, an arch rival of slain leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor, has said that the government should guarantee the exit of foreign troops, reports the Khaama Press.

A spokesman for the group, Mullah Manan Niazi, has endorsed the current system in the country, saying it is hundred percent in line with the Islamic values and is greater than the neighboring Islamic countries.

He said the group is prepared to sit for peace talks with the Government, adding the process should be owned and led by the people.

This comes as reports emerged earlier suggesting that efforts were underway to reach an agreement between the Government and the Mullah Rasool group.

Last month, Hezb-e-Islami leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar also signed a landmark peace deal with the Government following months of negotiations and efforts involving the High Peace Council.
