(CNN)The leader of a resistance group battling a Taliban offensive in Afghanistan’s northern Panjshir Valley said he is in support of clerics in the capital Kabul who have called for an end to the fighting, after a weekend of reported heavy losses.

In a Facebook post Sunday, leader of the National Resistance Front in Afghanistan (NRF) Ahmad Massoud, said he is ready to talk once the Taliban withdraw troops from Panjshir and the neighboring district of Andarab.

Earlier, Taliban spokesman Belal Kareemi told CNN the group’s militant fighters had taken all districts of Panjshir province except for the capital of Bazarak and Rokha districts, which remain under NRF control. But resistance fighters appeared to rebut the Taliban’s claims.

The Taliban claims it is now in complete control of the Afghan province of Panjshir, the last pocket of resistance to its rule.

There’s been heavy fighting in the province which is north of the capital Kabul, with the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan (NRF) resisting Taliban rule.

“With this victory, our country is completely taken out of the quagmire of war,” a Taliban spokesman said.

However, the NRF have denied this.

“It is not true, the Taliban haven’t captured Panjshir I am rejecting Taliban claims,” NRF spokesman Ali Maisam told the BBC.
