Afghanistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement referring to the Pakistani Foreign Minister’s remarks at the Munich Security Conference said that no one would be permitted to use Afghan soil against any country in the region and beyond.

The statement added that the current regime is fully committed to living up to its obligations made at the Doha Agreement, and will not pose threats to any country, the neighbors in particular.

The statement was released in response to Pakistan Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardri’s remarks – in which he criticized Afghanistan’s Taliban regime for failing to maintain its obligations.

Furthermore, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari at Munich Security Conference stated that a peaceful Afghanistan is significantly important for the stability of the region and asked the international community to help Afghanistan in terms of capacity building, liberating Afghan assets, removing banking restrictions and continuing humanitarian aid to Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, the Islamic Emirate authorities called on Pakistan to discuss bilateral issues with the Afghan government rather than complaining about them in international conferences.

Both Afghanistan and Pakistan have been victims of international terrorism over the past years. Since the return of the Taliban to power in August 2021, terror groups, mainly Islamic State-Khorasan militants have intensified their attacks in Kabul in particular, targeting foreign embassies, diplomatic missions, hotels, and educational institutions.

Similarly, in Pakistan, the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has increased its attacks across Pakistan since the group ended its unilateral ceasefire with the Pakistani government in November. TTP has mostly targeted police headquarters and checkpoints, army conveys, and Inter-Service Intelligence personnel.

Considering the volatile security situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan, both countries could work towards finding a comprehensive solution in the fight against terrorism rather than scapegoating each other.
