Afghan Taliban strongly react against speech of Pakistani PM at UNGA
ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif raised concerns over the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for activities against Pakistan during his speech at the United Nations, however, Kabul refuted such claims, saying no terror group is present in Afghanistan.
In the presence of world leaders, the Pakistani premier highlighted worries over the presence of terrorist organisations in war-torn nation.
As PM Shehbaz mentioned the threat posed by the terror groups operating from Afghanistan, especially Daesh and Tehreek e Taliban, the interim government called it incorrect information, saying such territory of Afghanistan will not be used against any other country nor does any armed group currently have a presence in Afghanistan.
“Rather than raising unsubstantiated concerns and allegations, the world should engage positively with the Islamic Emirate by sharing their view and concerns directly and not through the media or public statements,” Afghan foreign officials said.
