Post via Islamic Emirate
A British newspaper ‘The Sunday Times’ published a report claiming that the leader of Islamic Emirate, Amir ul Mumineen Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansoor, held a meeting in Tajikistan in the month of September with the Russian president Vladimir Putin.
We categorically reject this claim. The leader of Islamic Emirate has not visited Tajikistan and neither has such a meeting ever transpired with the Russian leaders.
Media outlets must responsibly publish reports concerning such matters and prevent causing damage to their reputations with mere rumors.
