Avoid meddling in Afghanistan, Taliban ask EU

Avoid meddling in Afghanistan, Taliban ask EU

May 30, 2020 - 14:08

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Talibaninfo-icon, reacting to a recent statement from the European Union, said on Saturday foreigners should not interfere in Afghanistaninfo-icon’s internal affairs.

On Friday, the Council of European Union (EU) adopted conclusions reaffirming the bloc’s political commitment to support the Afghans on their path towards peace and prosperity.

The EU said it would condition its future political and financial support to ensure the republican, democratic and values-based principles were protected and promoted.

In reaction, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said they welcomed EU’s support for peace in Afghanistan but some points in its statement were against the independence of Afghanistan.

In a statement, Mujahid said: “Foreign-imposed systems have always caused destruction and conflict and that’s unacceptable to Afghans.”

“We have repeatedly affirmed out commitment not to interfere in others’ affairs. The foreigners should also observe international principles and avoid meddling and trying to make the Afghan issue complicated.”

Mujahid added based on the Taliban-US peace pact, American allies would also refrain from interfere in the internal affairs of Afghanistan.

The Afghans themselves would take a decision on the country’s future system during intra-Afghan talks, the Taliban spokesman assed.

He said the militant group hoped that all sides would stick to their promises and avoid meddling so that the peace process was not harmed.
