Head of the Taliban Malawi Hebtullah Akhundzada in his message on the occasion of Eid-l-Adha assured all regional countries that the fighters will not allow anyone to use Afghanistan’s soil to pose threat to its neighbors or other countries.

Hebtullah in his message said foreign diplomats, embassies, consulates, welfare organizations, and investors are of utmost importance and the Taliban will strive to ensure their security and safety. He added other countries do not necessarily need to worry about the recent territorial gains of the Taliban and can carry on their operation as normal.

The Taliban leadership assures international agencies at a time when several consulates evacuated their diplomats from Kandahar and Mazar-e-sharif cities.

The message emphasizes on genuine Islamic system and calls on internal stakeholders not to be subject to the Taliban’s enmity in case they embrace the system. The message in this regard lays out that the rights and legitimate demands of all internal stakeholders will be accepted and the Taliban are willing to utilize the ability and intelligence of Afghans in reconstructing the country.

Malawi Hebtullah considers the Taliban negotiating team in Doha as potent and accused the Afghan government of wasting time in pushing peace talks forward.

People’s armed uprising is too criticized by the Taliban and asked the people to learn lessons from past and asked them to cooperate with the Taliban for establishing Islamic system.

The message from the Taliban leadership comes as the Afghan government and the Taliban delegation are busy discussing major points including a ceasefire and political system in Doha.
