Taliban denies hand in Central Asian clashes
Afghanistan has denied allegations that the ruling Taliban militia was involved in recent border clashes in some Central Asian countries.
Contending that the accusations against the Islamic Emirate were made to appease Americans and Russians, an Afghan foreign ministry statement said, “We believe that the problem which some of the Central Asian states are facing are due to the dictatorial policies of their rulers against their own people.”
“These Central Asian rulers want to hide their blunders and accuse others,” said the statement, released in Islamabad by the Afghan embassy on Wednesday. Such allegations will not solve their problems.
According to the statement recent clashes on the Kyrgz-Uzbek border as well as in Uzbekistan and Tajikitan were due to their internal problems.
“The Islamic Emirate is not involved,” the release said.
“We do not want to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries and also want others to desist from intervention in our internal affairs,” it said.
