Islamabad: Afghanistan Taliban has mocked the United States over its government shutdown and accused the US politicians of `sucking the blood of their own people`.

The Taliban said the Americans should realise that their politicians play with their destinies as well as the destinies of other oppressed nations for the sake of their personal vested interests, the Dawn News reports.

The Taliban militants, who are fighting US troops in Afghanistan, were ousted in 2001 and have since been posting statements against Washington on their portal.

The Islamist militants described the US institutions as paralysed in their latest statement on their website, the report added.

The US shutdown has seen hundreds of thousands of workers sent home without pay after Congress failed to pass a budget for the 2014 fiscal year that began October 1.
