The new developments come as a group of Afghan politicians announced a "National Reconciliation Plan", which they say will form a structure to represent the country in intra-Afghan dialogue.
"We must start training the local people to teach them how not to destroy the site."
"The US is moving forward in coordination with the Afghan government. Violence will be reduced when the (intra-Afghan) negotiations begin and this will result in a ceasefire."
"The operations were carried out in Balil Khel area, where Taliban's ammunition centre was located and various ammunition, mines, weapons, a large number of explosives, and two motorcycles destroyed."
The Independent Election Commission however insists multiple safeguards including biometric verification will make this year's vote the cleanest yet.
The agency went on to say that it had also received "credible information" about an additional 30 deaths -- mostly women and children -- and was working to further verify these claims.
US officials however have been keen to say there is no resumption of peace talks, at least not now in Islamabad.
The two sides were on the brink of a deal that would have seen Washington begin withdrawing troops from Afghanistan in return for various security promises from the Taliban.
The attack comes days after millions of Afghans went to the polls to vote for their next president, despite hundreds of Taliban bombings and small-scale attacks at polling stations.
The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack, claiming they were targeting security forces at the campaign rally.
"Both parties consented to follow the old agreement, on top of new promises in humanitarian aid leading to the Islamic Emirate granting ICRC permission to resume their activities."
“I'll tell you one thing--we are hitting the Taliban right now harder than they've ever been hit;”
The Afghan government has reiterated its stance to hold the Presidential elections on time (September 28) and move forward the ongoing peace process with "full wisdom and precision."
This is the first major attack in the Afghan capital since US President Donald Trump abruptly called off US-Taliban peace talks to end America's longest war lasting almost 20 years.
The true horrors of terrorism traceable to Pakistan was brought home to the US by the war on America launched that day by the Al Qaeda, which worked under the patronage of the Taliban that controlled Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Trump announced that he was calling off the peace negotiations with the Taliban and cancelled a "secret meeting" with the group's representatives.
"Unbeknownst to almost everyone, the major Taliban leaders and, separately, the President of Afghanistan, were going to secretly meet with me at Camp David on Sunday."
