Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): "Elizabeth Horst", the US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, stated in a statement that the Al-Qaeda network cannot pose a threat to this country from Afghanistan.
In a speech in the US House of Representatives, Horst said: We no longer believe that Afghanistan is a center from which Al-Qaeda can pose a threat to America.
According to Dari Radio, he added that if there is a threat against the US from Afghanistan, the US will unilaterally act against that threat.
Previously, the US National Intelligence Council, in its assessment of al-Qaeda, which parts of it were declassified last month, stated that al-Qaeda currently does not have the ability to carry out foreign operations from Afghanistan.
This assessment adds: If it decides to carry out such attacks globally, it can rely on its offensive capabilities in the Middle East and Africa.
US President Joe Biden said not long ago that this country will seek help from the Islamic Emirate to suppress the Al-Qaeda network in Afghanistan.
