A spokesman for the Taliban’s political office told Al-Jazeera TV on Sunday that there is no agreement on a ceasefire with the Afghan government.

The Taliban also warned against further US intervention in Afghanistan, international news agency Reuters reported.

There is no ceasefire agreement with the Afghan government on the horizon as the Taliban continues its military gains, said Muhammad Naeem Wardak, the spokesman for the Taliban’s political bureau was quoted as saying.

The comments come after the Taliban seized control of Kunduz, a strategically important provincial capital in northern Afghanistan, on Sunday.

The Taliban has taken control of the capitals of three other provinces, at a time when its battle moved to the cities after seizing most of the countryside in recent months.

The militants have taken control of as many as five state capitals since Friday.
