On Wednesday, the militants launched an attack on the interior ministry in Kabul, demonstrating their ability to carry out strikes in the capital.

Nicholson's remarks came hours after Afghan security guards foiled a suspected Taliban attack on the Interior Ministry in Kabul. Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish says one policeman was killed and another five were wounded.

"After that, several gunmen tried to get into the ministry, but they faced resistance by our security forces", he said. The statement called it an "immersion attack" on the ministry in Kabul.

The group views the Afghan government as weak, divided and unable to make decisions on big issues, including the full withdrawal of US/Nato forces, releasing their prisoners and the removal of Taliban officials' names from sanctions lists.
