Kabul disowns, rejects Mohaqiq remarks in Tehran

Nov 29, 2017 - 19:53

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Afghan government on Wednesday termed recent remarks of Deputy Chief Executive Mohammad Mohaqiq against its foreign policy, national interest, security, stability and laws of the country.

In a statement, the Presidential Palace said Mohaqiq’s statement never represented the government of Afghanistaninfo-icon’s viewpoint.

Earlier, Mohaqiq had visited Tehran where he praised the fighters, including Afghans, for their victories in the conflict in Syria.

Mohaqiq thanked the fighters, including Afghans, for their victories in the Syrian war, while addressing a gathering ‘Moheban Ahlebait’.

“I thank all the warriors who cooperated in these wars from Iraq, Syria, AfghanistanPakistan and other parts of the world who took part in the war. In fact it was the war of Islam against infidelity and against the conspiracies of the world arrogance.”

However, the Presidential Palace said Afghanistan has been fighting terrorist groups, including Daesh, from a long time and the Afghans rendered huge sacrifices in the war against terrorism.

It added the Afghan government always acted to prevent terrorist groups from growing their influence and the country’s security forces were currently fighting in the front lines against terrorist groups.

The statement rejected Mohaqiq’s recent remarks uttered in Tehran and termed them against the national interest, foreign policy, stability, security and enforced laws of the country. The deputy chief executive viewpoint never represented the official stance of the Afghan government, it added.

“These remarks should not become a reason for tension and division among the people of Afghanistan. The government is examining Mohaqiq’s remarks in the light of the country’s laws and the national interest.”

The statement said the government allowed the Afghans for military services under the framework of the national interest. Afghanistan was never involved in proxy wars and would never allow anybody to covert Afghanistan into a ground for proxy wars.

The government of Afghanistan was committed to resolving the issue of its citizens involvement in foreign conflicts through internationally agreed principles, norms and mutual agreements.
