Historically the people of Afghanistan have not proved detrimental to nor interfered in the internal affairs of others and they seek a reciprocal treatment towards the Afghans from other countries.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan – as a representative of its people – is waging a war against the American occupation. Those waging war against us are either foreign invading countries – who toppled our established government, are killing our people, destroying our homes and have snatched freedom from our nation – or the warlords and incompetent and corrupt individuals of the Kabul administration who have been forced upon our people by America. They do not have the popular support and backing of our people and only work for their own interests by spending their short political lives under the wings of American aircraft.
Reports circulating in the media state that India will be providing military aid to the Kabul administration in form of aircrafts and other equipment. This is the severalth time that India is giving the stooge Kabul administration military aid and it is an obvious fact that such weapons will be used to kill our people, oppress our nation and destroy our homes and public welfare structures, a good example of which is Puli Alchin bridge in Kunduz recently destroyed by regime helicopters that were provided by the Indian government.
Providing the Kabul administration with such deadly weapons cannot be interpreted as friendship with the people of our country but as support for a criminal foreign backed group and clear hostility towards our people. The Islamic Emirate condemns this action with the strongest of terms. Such acts will create distrust between the people of both countries and become a reason for further deterioration of relationship.
We call on India to stop exporting items of killing and destruction to Afghanistan and to stop efforts of prolonging the lifespan of this corrupt regime with its military aid.
If anyone wishes to strengthen the Kabul stooge administration with military aid during occupation, this cannot be interpreted as anything other than enmity with the Afghans and shall arouse hatred of the people of Afghanistan.
Spokesman of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
