Taliban asks Pakistan not to interfere in the internal affairs of Afghanistan
Kabul: Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs, Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanekzai has asked Pakistan not to interfere in the internal issues of Afghanistan.
Referring to remarks by Pakistani Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif claiming a presence of terrorist groups in Afghanistan, Stanekzai was quoted as saying by Tolo News that the Islamic Emirate denies and condemns the claims and that it will also not allow anyone to make such statements toward Afghanistan.
“We strongly condemned the Pakistan Prime Minister’s action. We don’t allow anyone to speak against the Islamic Emirate ... If Pakistan has an economic problem and is placed on a black list of the International Monitoring Funding, no one takes their call to give them money. If you (Pakistan) is not given a loan, it is your problem--find your way through any way you can, but don’t talk about the dignity of the people of Afghanistan and don’t defame Afghanistan just to earn some money,” he said.
“Pakistan had a vital role in Afghanistan’s war and peace over past 40 years. We must say that it had the role due to lack of good management by our politicians sometimes. Pakistan takes advantage of the vacuum,” Torek Farhadi, a political analyst, told Tolo News.
