MoFA criticizes presence of US drones in Afghan airspace

KABUL (TOLOnews): Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Amir Khan Muttaqi expressed criticism over reports of US drones that are flying above Afghanistan and called on Washington to stop the violation of Afghan air space.
Muttaqi called on the international community to put pressure on the US to stop violating Afghan airspace.
“This is against international norms and also against the Doha agreement. We have talked with the delegation of the US many times and we emphasized that the Afghan airspace must not be violated from now on,” he said.
Referring to the US announcement of killing the al-Qaeda leader in Kabul, Muttaqi said that the US has yet to provide details or proof of Zawahiri’s killing.
“The US did not give us proof nor has our investigation been completed. I can assure you that the appointed delegation, they have yet to reach a final result on it,” he said.
Speaking at a press conference to provide details of the ministry’s annual activities, officials said the Islamic Emirate is pursuing a moderate policy toward all countries.
“We had exports of more than $1 billion over the past year, which is unprecedented in the last 20 years,” said Mohammad Shafiq Khateeb, head of the consulate department of the Foreign Ministry.
