Taliban admire Imran Khan's efforts for Afghanistan


New Delhi, Sep 21 : The Taliban said on Tuesday that they admire Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's efforts for peace, stability and an inclusive government in Afghanistan, the Express Tribune reported. "We do not see the positive statements of Prime Minister Imran Khan as interference in the internal matters of Afghanistan," said the spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, Zabiullah Mujahid, at a news conference in Kabul. The spokesperson added that Pakistan, Qatar and China are playing an active role for stability in Afghanistan. "We will welcome the role of the countries which are interested to work with good intent for peace and stability in Afghanistan," he added, the report said. "We are heading towards an inclusive government. More people from different ethnicities, including Hazaras, technocrats and educated people, have been inducted in the interim cabinet. The cabinet formation is not complete yet and more people will be included in it," Mujahid said. Responding to a question, the spokesperson expressed confidence that economic activities would soon resume in the country. Ahead of talks on Afghanistan at the UN General Assembly, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that the most urgent priority is averting an even deeper economic collapse of the neighbouring nation that could trigger a humanitarian catastrophe. On September 3, the Taliban had heaped praise on Pakistan for its longstanding contributions towards the people of Afghanistan. /IANS
