Kabul: Taliban's acting army chief of staff Qari Fasihuddin has said that Afghanistan would soon have a regular army to defend the country.

As per an India Today report, Fasihuddin further said, "We will not let a civil war erupt. Those disturbing security and stability will be trampled and those opposing the Taliban will be arrested."

He tweeted, "Afghanistan will soon have a well-organized army and force.
