Afghan Taliban government hits out hard against Pakistan

Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesperson for the Afghan Taliban government, stated on Wednesday that Afghanistan is not responsible for establishing peace in Pakistan. He emphasized that the Afghan government prohibits the use of Afghan soil against Pakistan but clarified that ensuring peace in Pakistan is not within Afghanistan's purview.

This response came in reaction to Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar's remarks on cross-border attacks. PM Kakar had earlier noted a 60% increase in terror attacks in Pakistan since the Taliban-led government assumed control of Afghanistan two years ago, linking 15 Afghan citizens to these incidents.

Mujahid asserted that Pakistan should address its domestic issues without attributing blame to Afghanistan.

He highlighted that the rise in attacks does not implicate Afghanistan, emphasizing the security of weapons in the country and the prohibition of weapon smuggling and unlawful activities.

Expressing Afghanistan's desire for amicable relations with Pakistan as a neighbor, Mujahid urged mutual understanding. He underscored Afghanistan's commitment to preventing its soil from being used for infiltration into other countries and urged the Pakistani government not to doubt this resolve.
