Afghan Taliban reacts angrily to Saudi Ambassador remarks

The Taliban group in Afghanistan reacted at the remarks of the Saudi Arabia envoy after he called the group a terrorist organization.

A spokesman for the group Zabiullah Mujahid in a statement said the Kingdom of Saudi Arabai should play its role to resolve the ongoing conflict in the country, claiming that Afghanistan has been occupied by the foreigners.

Mujahid also dismissed the remarks by the Saudi envoy regarding the group’s political office in Qatar, saying that office has been established with an aim to seek ways for the peace talks and reconciliation.

The Saudi Arabia Charge d’Affaires in Kabul said Monday that the stance of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is that it condemns any move through violence and insurgency against the government of Afghanistan as a terrorist act.

He also added that the kingdom considers the Taliban group as an ‘anti-government terrorist group’.

This comes as the pressures are on the rise against the insurgency led by the Taliban group amid soaring violence across the country, mainly led by the Taliban insurgents.
