The ceasefire proposal, yet to receive the final approval, is the latest in a series of political initiatives of the Taliban as it seeks to position itself as the first line of defence against the IS, which has set up a government in Khorasan, in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar. IS has also established footholds in the neighbouring provinces of Zabul and Ghazni, while its cell in Kabul has subjected the capital to a spate of lethal suicide attacks.
