In his first Eid statement on 22 September, new Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour ruled out negotiations with the Kabul government unless all foreign troops leave Afghanistan. The statement came as Mansour consolidates control of the Taliban movement with key Taliban commanders reversing their opposition to Mansour in the ongoing leadership dispute (see Afghanistan: 14 September 2015: Mullah Mansour's grip on Afghan Taliban leadership tightens, increases prospect for resumption of peace talks).
