Remarks by spokesman of Islamic Emirate concerning recent UNSC report

Remarks by spokesman of Islamic Emirate concerning recent UNSC report

The United Nations Security Council released a report asserting that the Islamic Emirate has no interest in peace and that it has links with Al Qaeda organization.

We reject this report. Regrettably, it is compiled from false information provided by enemy circles and has exploited the position of the United Nations Security Council.

The policy of the Islamic Emirate remains that it will not allow anyone to use the soil of Afghanistan to threaten the security of anyone else.

Moreover, the representatives of the Islamic Emirate have made complete preparations for intra-Afghan negotiations so that progress can be made during talks and all clauses of the Doha agreement be implemented. But unfortunately, the other side has still failed to comply with this important accord, for example, not withdrawing all foreign forces from Afghanistan by May, not removing names of leaders of the Islamic Emirate from UN black and reward lists, obstructing progress in intra-Afghan negotiations, and not resolving  the issue of all prisoner release in three month period following the launch of intra-Afghan negotiations – all of which constitute violations of the Doha agreement.

It is evident from the above that the Islamic Emirate has acted in line with the Doha agreement but the opposite side has not fulfilled its commitments and violated them.

Pinning blame on the Islamic Emirate by the UNSC in such circumstances is injustice. They must not cater to the mood of one party, must verify their data, must candidly share their concerns with representatives of the Islamic Emirate and not confound the situation by publishing false information.

Release of such partisan reports calls into question the impartiality of UNSC and damages its international credibility.

The Islamic Emirate is committed to the peace process, but, if anyone wants to impose their agendas on the Afghans from abroad or take a stand against the sovereignty of Afghanistan, then we will stand up to them and consider defending our right as our legal prerogative.
