Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has called for a cease-fire with the Taliban.
It would take effect on Monday and last at least through the Eid al-Adha holiday this week.
In a series of tweets on Sunday, Ghani said, "We call on the leadership of the Taliban to welcome the wishes of Afghans for a long lasting and real peace, and we urge them to get ready for peace-talks based on Islamic values and principles."
He said he hoped the cease-fire could be extended until Nov. 20, the holiday associated with the Prophet Muhammad's birth.
The Associated Press reports the cease-fire comes a day after the leader of the Afghan Taliban said there wouldn't be peace in the country "as long as 'foreign occupation' continues."
The Taliban didn't immediately respond to the request.
