Taliban reject UNSC report alleging links with al Qaeda
The Afghan Taliban dismissed the UN Security Council report claiming that the group has no concern for peace and has ties with Al Qaeda. They said they have no interest in peace.
“The Taliban and Al Qaeda remain closely connected and show little evidence of rupture. The relationship that has been deeper as a result of the personal bonds of marriage and the joint cooperation of the fighting, which have now been strengthened via second-generation links, is not being significantly changed by the Member States,” the UNSC report released Wednesday.
“It is this report we reject. Unfortunately, the position of the United Nations Security Council has been drawn from fake information provided in enemy circles and used,” Taliban Speaker Zabihullah Mujahid stated in a statement on Thursday.
The Taliban’s doctrine is that no one can use Afghanistan’s soil to jeopardize anyone else’s safety, he adds.
In addition, Taliban representatives have completed preparations for conversations intra-Afghan to allow progress in talks and to implement all the provisions of the Doha Agreement.
But, unfortunately, this important accord has not yet been complied with by the United States, for example not withdraws from Afghanistan by May all foreign forces, does not remove black and reward lists of the Islamic Emirate leaders, obstructs progress in intra-Afghan negotiations and does not solve the problem of all prisoner releases within three months of the start of I
From the above it is clear that the Taliban did not fulfill their undertakings and breached them in compliance with the Doha Agreement, he noted.
“The UNSC in these circumstances is wrong to accuse the Islamic Emirate. The Taliban statement added: “They must not respond to the mood of one side; they must check their facts; they must convey their concerns with Islamic Emirates representatives and they must not confuse the situation by disseminating misinformation.”
The Taliban Speaker stated that “these politicized reports” threaten the UNSC’s impartiality and undermine its international reputation.
The Muslim Emirates are devoted to the process of peace but if somebody wants to force their agendas on Afghans outside the country or to stand against the sovereignty of Afghanistan, then we will rise up and see our rights as our legal prerogative.” “We are committed to the peace process.
