Afghanistan

Security being provided despite contrary claims

Written by The Frontier Post

KABUL (TOLOnews): The Islamic Emirate, in response to remarks by Ahmad Massoud, the leader of the resistance front, said Kabul is not allowing any individual or group to disrupt security.
Bilal Karimi, the deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, said that the current government is inclusive and all ethnic groups have a share in it.
“At this time, there is no movement, phenomena, or anything that has a physical presence and fixed positions in our country, and we still do not allow the security of our people to be disturbed,” he said.
Ahmad Massoud, in an interview with the Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center, called for the creation of a transparent process and the forming of a legal government in Afghanistan.
“There’s no other option but to resist until [Islamic Emirate members] understand and realize they need to also submit—as [do] all of us—to a legitimate process which brings a legitimate government which is accountable to the people of Afghanistan, and also to the world,” he said.
Meanwhile, Amrullah Saleh, the first vice president of the previous government, in an interview with the BBC said that the West should help the Afghans create a legitimate state.
“The West owes us, the West is, as I said, guilty, and they have to help the Afghans create a legitimate state. Recognition of the Taliban will intensify the civil war, it will lead to massacre,” Saleh said.
Fazl Hadi Muslimyar, speaker of the senate during the previous government, in an interview with TOLOnews asked the Islamic Emirate to engage in talks in order to end the war.
“Try to negotiate and discuss as much as possible in order to end the war and get close to the people,” Muslimyar said. Earlier, the international community said that for the Islamic Emirate’s recognition, the creation of an inclusive government is needed, but Kabul has consistently said that the current government is already inclusive.
