On Saturday, unarmed members of the Taliban militia entered Afghanistan's capital Kabul to celebrate a truce marking the end of the Islamic fasting season Ramadan and exchanged selfies with Afghan servicemen and government officials.
"Last night, an emergency meeting was called and all the commanders were informed and directed to take strict disciplinary action against all those Taliban members who visited citizens and took pictures with the Afghan authorities," a senior Taliban official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

He went on to say that initially, Pakistan authorities wanted foreign troops, including the US forces, to be included in the three-day ceasefire, however, the Taliban's leaders refused to do so.

The government's ceasefire did not include the *Daesh terrorist group and the truce declared by Taliban did not cover foreign forces.
*Daesh (also known as ISIS/ISIL/IS/Islamic State) and Taliban are terrorist groups banned in Russia.
