The Taliban (an Afghani Islamist militant movement) affirmed that it refuses to establish diplomatic relations with Israel.
The movement seized power in Afghanistan after its fighters took over Kabul, the capital city of the country on August 15.
Sushil Shaheen, a spokesman for the Taliban, sat with Novosti, a Russian news agency, and told reporters that his movement doesn’t want any relations with Israel but it seeks to strengthen ties with all countries across the world.
Shaheen added that the Taliban plans to forge good ties with the regional and neighboring Asian countries.
He went on to say that Israel isn’t among these countries in any case so relations with Israel are impermissible.
On resuming diplomatic relations with the USA, Shaheen said that such relations may be useful for the two people of the two countries.
It is worth noting that the Taliban refuses to recognize Israel.
Zabiullah Mujahid, another spokesman for the Taliban, has depicted Israel as a tumor on the body of the Islamic nation.
On the other hand, the Taliban announced that is ready to establish diplomatic with the United States of America (USA) and it welcomes the USA participation in the reconstruction of Afghanistan if it wills.
Days earlier, Reuters, a news agency, quoted three Taliban (an Afghani Islamist militant movement) sources as saying that the movement succeeded in seizing all parts of Afghanistan after defeating the northern rebels.
One of the movement’s leaders told the agency that they thank God, as they are in control of the whole of Afghanistan.
The rioters and Panjshir have now been defeated under our leadership.”
The movement announced its control of the second largest area in the state of Panjshir, the last stronghold of the northern rebels in the country.
Earlier today, Taliban spokesman Hanafi Wardak stated on his Twitter account that “the large and strategic Brian district of Panjshir has been completely cleared of criminal formations.
However, media reports were talking about the failure of the “Taliban” attempt to storm Panjshir last night and incurred tangible losses.
On the other hand, the United Nations warned of the approaching severe food crisis in Afghanistan because food stocks there may run out as soon as this month.
Ramiz Alakbarov, Deputy Special Representative and Humanitarian Coordinator for Afghanistan, said that more than half of children under the age of five suffer from severe malnutrition, and more than a third of the population does not get enough food.
“Alakbarov stressed that it is very important that the international community should do its best to prevent Afghanistan from slipping into another humanitarian catastrophe, by taking the necessary steps to provide the basic materials that this country needs now, and support food, health, protection, and non-food services to those who need them most.
