Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement, that Taliban presence in Pakistan is a clear violation of Afghanistan’s national sovereignty.

Taliban’s presence in Pakistan will continue crisis and instability in the region, and will affect efforts for lasting peace in Afghanistan, MoFA stated.

The Afghan foreign ministry also called on Pakistan for not allowing insurgents to use Pakistan’s soil against Afghanistan.

According to MoFA, some Taliban members during their recent trip to Pakistan visited training centers and met with the group’s fighters.

Reports indicate Baradar met with wounded Taliban fighters and some Afghan refugees.

He also met with Pakistani political officials during his visit.
