Mujahid rejects U.S. claim about foreign militants activity in Afghanistan

KABUL: Spokesman of the Islamic Emirate Zabihullah Mujahid in an interview with Tolonews rejected the U.S. Department of State’s 2022 annual terrorism report about the activity of al-Qaeda and Daesh elements in Afghanistan. He said during the two years of the rule of the Islamic Emirate, no threat has been posed to any country from Afghanistan. “The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has seriously started its fight against any phenomenon that incites insecurity in Afghanistan and has stood up effectively. Therefore, Afghanistan is safe. Expressing concerns about Afghanistan’s soil is not true, we reject it. And all countries should recognize Afghanistan as a safe area,” Mujahid said as quoted by the TV. The U.S. Department of State, On November 30, released a report dated April 2023 that focused on terrorism in 2022, the report claimed that Al-Qaeda, Daesh, and other regional terrorist groups remained active in Afghanistan. “In Afghanistan, al-Qa’ida elements, ISIS, and regionally focused terrorist groups remained active in the country. ISIS-Khorasan (ISIS-K) continued to conduct terrorist attacks against Afghan civilians, particularly members of the Shia community, and the Taliban [Islamic Emirate]. In 2022, ISIS-K conducted cross-border attacks in Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan and maintained ambitions to attack the West. Al-Qa’ida and its affiliates, particularly al-Qa’ida in the Indian Subcontinent, also remained intent — but lacked the capability — to directly attack the United States from Afghanistan,” the report reads. This comes as Pakistan is claiming that Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and other terrorist groups have safe havens in Afghanistan — claims which have always been denied by the Islamic Emirate.
