KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): A senior police commander in the northern zone on Wednesday claimed the Talibaninfo-icon had intensified their attacks in northern Kunduz province to enable foreign terrorists to sneak into Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

Lt. Gen. Sher Aziz Kamawal, the 808th Spin Zar Zone Police commander, told Pajhwok Afghan News in an exclusive interview that “the Taliban wanted to bring into Kunduz Jandullah, Tajik and Uzbek extremists and then send them to Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.”

“The war in Kunduz is very complex, Pakistaninfo-icon has pressed the Taliban to take out their councils from Pakistan to Afghanistaninfo-icon, it is the reason the militants have focused more on Kunduz,” Kamawal said.

However, he said Afghan forces would not allow Taliban militants to use Afghanistan’s soil for instability of other countries.

No Taliban spokesman could be reached for comment on Kamawal’s claims.

A recent UN Security Council report puts at around 45,000 the number of militants fighting against Afghan forces.
