The de facto administration has dismissed concerns about threats emanating from Afghan soil against regional countries and has urged Russia and other nations to adopt a realistic approach towards Afghanistan.

The spokesperson, Zabihullah Mujahid, stated that no foreign groups exist in Afghanistan and no part of country’s territory is beyond the control of the Taliban.

Russia’s defence minister recently stated that the regional situation is volatile and the greatest threat likely comes from Afghanistan.

Sergei Shoigu, the Russian defense minister, stated on Tuesday, during a meeting of the ministry’s leadership, that the number of ISIS members has increased by 15% in the past year, and their main aim is destructive activities along the borders with the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) countries.

Zabihullah Mujahid, in response to Russia’s defense minister’s remarks, rejected the expressed concerns and urged Russia and other countries to adopt a realistic approach.

Mujahid added: “Two and a half years of Taliban rule has proven that no threat from Afghanistan targets anyone.”

Mujahid, further added that such claims are made to create concerns or are the result of the dissemination of incorrect information by countries regarding the region.

According to him, the ultimate aim of such concerns is to prevent the regional countries from getting closer and to sow seeds of mistrust among them.

He once again urged Russia and other countries to judge based on facts and understand the ground realities of Afghanistan.

Nevertheless, Russia’s defense minister, besides expressing concerns about terrorism threats from Afghan soil against regional countries, also mentioned the possibility of drug trafficking through Central Asian countries.

He stated that efforts to resolve critical conditions in regional countries and participation in seven exercises in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan, including Russia’s military plans with its allies in the CSTO member countries, are among Russia’s military plans.
