“I am asking the Taliban to dare and say why they have relations with Pakistan, if I am working with US, the result is asphalted road, university, airlines, government system, institutions, army, police, intelligence, defending Afghan culture. Why are you working with ISI?,” the running mate of Ashraf Ghani, Amrullah Saleh said in a peace event at the Institute of War and Peace Studies (IWPS).
He declared that the Taliban claims that they are fighting against the foreigners in Afghanistan are “completely baseless”.
“Taliban are murderers of Afghanistan’s elites, they should answer why they killed them. Pashtuns suffered the most from Taliban over the last 18 years,” he asserted.
Saleh noted that peace talks in Qatar may end war between Taliban and Americans, but it will not end Taliban-Afghanistan fighting.
“No foreigners can reflect our interests in negotiations with Taliban and no foreigners can impose their deal on us,” he said.
Saleh added that the Afghan people will defend their soil and rights if there are foreigners in Afghanistan or not.
