The statement further added, “It must be mentioned that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan wants cordial relations in the framework of mutual respect with its neighboring and regional countries as well as the international community.”

“It does not interfere with the affairs of others and neither does it accept interference by others in its own affairs. The Islamic Emirate had good relations with its neighboring countries during the time of its rule and is still committed to the principles of good neighborly relations and mutual respect,” the statement added.

This comes as local officials blamed Taliban group leaders Mullah Abdullah and Ahmad for entering the territory of Turkmenistan and killing of three Turkmenistan border guards.

Turkmenistan consulate officials in western Afghanistan also confirmed that three of their border guards were killed following militants attack.

  1. And when did anyone start trusting blood thirsty thugs (Taliban) dashing around Afghanistan and Pakistan without clear markings on their uniforms…Oh wait, that would be the Russians invading Afghanistan in the 1980’s and Ukraine today. My bad… Tells you who the Taliban learned their dirty tricks from!

    The Taliban took an even lower position of dishonor by not wearing any uniforms so they can blend in as civilians and take human shields.
