(Statement via Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan)
The powerless Kabul regime officials have recently levelled a diverse array of accusations upon the valiant Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate in an attempt to cover up their own vulnerability and impotency. Sometimes they attribute the heroic advances of Mujahideen to others and other times brand their strength as danger to the neighbors all the while publishing reports about their weakness and running away to neighboring countries. Statements of such contradictory nature only serve to lift the veil from their own fragile state.
The impotent officials of the two-headed Kabul administration having become disillusioned with the American promises and unsatisfied with oppression, transgression and savagery being committed against the Afghan people by the current invaders have begun signaling towards others in order to keep our beloved homeland occupied. All countrymen are aware that on top of seeking the continuation of the current occupation, some sinister faces are now openly calling for military aid from Russia so to offer up the Afghan Mujahid nation and Afghanistan as sacrifice for new conspiracies. Similarly with the Jihadi advance of Islamic Emirate in the country’s northern parts, they have commenced baseless propaganda and are raising false flags of imminent danger and intentions of harm by the Islamic Emirate for the northern neighbors.
The Islamic Emirate has this unambiguous message for all the neighboring and regional countries; instead of listening to the poisonous propaganda of the enemies, it would be better for you to begin researching and understanding the realities by yourselves. Our enemies will never truthfully relay the ground realities and our actual goals. So come, let us talk and meet face to face and exchange views on goals and values. We state very clearly that our Jihadi or armed struggle in Afghanistan is our Shariah based and lawful right; our nation is occupied by America and NATO, our freedom and national sovereignty has been stepped upon, our legitimate government has been dismantled, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed, millions of Afghans have been oppressed and our motherland has been transgressed upon therefore its defense is our legitimate right! And we similarly have never undertaken any military action outside of our borders and neither can anyone provide proof otherwise.
In this day and age the planet has transformed into a village with communal needs. Shared interests and common benefits, trade, transit routes, joint cultural and educational values and assistance in all other walks of life are requirements of our time. Keeping this principle in mind we seek cordial relations with our neighboring, regional and other countries around the world based upon understanding in the framework of our Islamic and national interests.
If anyone is skeptical of the policy and actions of the Islamic Emirate regarding the above mentioned issues, we are ready to hold constructive dialogue, remove all doubts through understanding and provide answers to all their queries. The Islamic Emirate hopes that our good-willed gesture will be responded to positively by the regional heads so that our region does not become a victim of the expansive propaganda of the west and their stooges.
