Taliban Spokesman to Al Mayadeen: Discussing Agreements With Washington is Wrong
Mohammad Naim, a spokesperson for the Taliban's political office, divulged to Al Mayadeen that "the government would be inclusive of all parties."
In an interview for Al Mayadeen, the spokesman for the Taliban's political office, Mohammad Naim, confirmed today, Tuesday, that "the next government will be inclusive of all parties," emphasizing that "speaking about an agreement between the Taliban and Washington to control Afghanistan is completely wrong."
"The date specified in the Doha agreement for departure is the end of April," Naim said, adding that "America postponed the deadline, and we did not accept it," adding that "the Americans should adhere by the planned date for the removal of foreign soldiers from Afghanistan."
In an interview for Al Mayadeen, Naim stated that the allegations against the Taliban are not new and that the Taliban have been attacked through the media for more than 20 years, adding that "the West's claims against the Taliban are hollow, and we know how they create stories."
Commenting on the G7 summit's stances, he said, "So far, we have not declared the government, so how can the summit of the G7 and others take decisions in this regard?"
Naim detailed that the Taliban's relationship with Iran, China, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, and others are not new and that those countries are not worried, highlighting the desire to develop the relations and continuous communication with Afghanistan's neighboring countries.
Members of the G7 stated earlier today, Tuesday, that "the Taliban will be held accountable for their actions on preventing terrorism, on human rights, in particular, those of women, girls and minorities and on pursuing an inclusive political settlement in Afghanistan," in a statement issued at the conclusion of their online summit.
Taliban Spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said at a news conference in Kabul today that the movement closed the road leading to Kabul airport, adding that “we only allow foreign individuals to pass through“.
