John Bolton, a former adviser to the US National Security Council, said in an interview that the increased influx of international terrorists in Afghanistan should worry everyone in the world.

Bolton claimed that US intelligence findings show that ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorist groups are restructuring in Afghanistan in an interview with Voice of America (VOA).

Bolton told VOA that the rapid growth of ISIS and the Al-Qaeda network in Afghanistan has put not only Afghanistan but also the region and the rest of the world in grave danger.

The former National Security official of the US accused the Taliban government of having ties with international terrorist groups and failing to comply with the provisions of the Doha Agreement to battle terrorism.

“The Taliban have proven once again that their words are not worth the paper they are printed on. They have created a worldwide danger, not only in Afghanistan,” Bolton said.

According to the top former American official, the Taliban made assurances to the US in the Doha Agreement to break ties with the terrorists and prevent Afghanistan from functioning as a safe haven for terrorists once again.

However, the group, according to Bolton, has not fulfilled the commitments made under the Doha Agreement, especially with the stay of al-Qaeda leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri in Afghanistan.

Senior Taliban officials have previously stated that the group will not enable terrorist organizations to use Afghan soil to pose a threat to the security of other countries.
