Pakistan’s interim Prime Minister, Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, expressed on Monday that there was an initial expectation of improved security following the Taliban takeover. However, contrary to these expectations, the security situation in Pakistan has deteriorated since then.

In a Geo News interview, Kakar expressed disappointment as he had initially believed that the situation in Pakistan would improve with the rise of the Taliban (Islamic Emirate) to power. However, he observed that instead of improving, the situation had worsened.

Kakar pointed out that the escalation could be attributed to the presence of leftover American and NATO weapons and equipment now controlled by terrorist groups. He emphasized that this situation has adversely affected Pakistan and neighbouring countries such as Iran, China, and Central Asian nations.

“I think the reason for the deterioration of the situation is the weapons and equipment left over from America and NATO, which are in the hands of terrorist groups,” It hurt Pakistan and the entire region, including Iran, China and Central Asian countries, he said.
“Bad things have started for Pakistan,” he added.

“If America surrendered its weapons and equipment responsibly, or if the withdrawal process was carried out responsibly, it would have been easy for us. Now, due to the hasty exit, it is not clear who got all the weapons and advanced military equipment that the former army had; a part of it may have fallen into the hands of the Taliban, but it is also possible that a large part of it has fallen into the hands of criminal and terrorist groups,” Kakar stated.

Meanwhile, Kakar said Pakistan wants “a safe, stable and happy Pakistan, which is tied to a safe, stable and happy Afghanistan, so we expect the two countries will deal with all these problems in full coordination.”

Contrary to the allegations, the Taliban authorities have denied involvement and asserted their commitment to preventing any individual or group from using Afghanistan’s territory to launch attacks against Pakistan and other regional countries.
