No American prisoner in Afghanistan, ministry

KABUL: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has rejected as baseless a claim by the U.S.’s State Department on the presence of American citizens in Afghanistan, the ministry said in a statement Saturday. “No American citizen remained in Afghanistan nor anyone arrested recently,” said the country’s foreign ministry in a statement. Earlier U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said that the
Islamic Emirate was detaining “several Americans” and that they were working to assist their exit from Afghanistan. Asked how many Americans remained in Afghanistan, Blinken responded: “There are several
Americans whom the Taliban (the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan) are detaining. We are working to secure their freedom.” In an interview with a private TV, the spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, Zabihullah Mujahid, also KABUL: The Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid has rejected the U.S. Daesh militants curbed further than ever in Afghanistan, Mujahid claim about wide number of Daesh militants in Afghanistan. On his Twitter handle, Mujahid wrote: “Overstating and the U.S. authorities’ concern about the issue helps the rebel group of Daesh and is a campaign for the group that should be stopped.” Earlier U.S. authorities have claimed that large number of Daesh militants were still active in Afghanistan, which can
potentially impose threat to its interest, a claim the Islamic Emirate officials frequently rejected. The Kabul Times rejected if there was any American citizen in the Islamic Emirate detention.
