A number of western media outlets published reports yesterday that a video produced in Syria shows that a group of Eastern Turkestani (Uighur) Mujahideen have a presence in Afghanistan, are wielding weapons and have possession of Humvees and pickup trucks.
The Islamic Emirate strongly rejects these reports. There are no foreign nationals present in Afghanistan. Following the invasion of Afghanistan by America and the subsequent large-scale war, all foreign Mujahideen and nationals that had arrived in Afghanistan during the war against the Soviet Union left – with majority returned back to their country of origin and others taking refuge in other Arab countries.
Reports and rumors about such groups maintaining armed presence in Afghanistan is not only propaganda but such reports are circulated to create uncertainty between the Islamic Emirate and the neighboring countries and give pretense for the presence of American invaders in the region.
The video published in Syria showing an image montage from Afghanistan with Afghan military and civilian fatigues, American Humvee APCs and Ford Ranger vehicles along with weapons are taken from a video of a Jihadi Unit of the Islamic Emirate and then falsified into this release with the evil intention of creating mistrust.
The Islamic Emirate assures regional and world countries that the soil of Afghanistan will not be used against any other country and is hopeful that other countries will also have a reciprocal policy.
