The acting foreign minister of Afghanistan Amir Khan Motaqi has said that the Taliban were no threat to the world in the past twenty years and added that they should not be pressurized now.

Amir Khan Motaqi said that they have good relations with the world and added that the pressures of a number of countries will not work.

Though the acting minister did not name any country, he indirectly addressed the US as it is putting pressure over the Taliban by freezing billions of dollars of the central bank of Afghanistan.

“A developed and stable Afghanistan is in the favor of the region and the world and the international community now knows this.” Said Motaqi.

The acting foreign minister added that their relations with the world are getting shape and they are trying to build economic relations which will be in favor of the entire region.

It comes as a delegation of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is reportedly visiting Moscow.

Earlier, Pakistani foreign minister Mahmoud Qureshi had said that the world should be lenient with the Taliban and release the frozen assets.
