The NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, speaking to journalists during the NATO Ministerial meeting said that the cost of withdrawing occupying forces from Afghanistan would be greater than staying put.

The Islamic Emirate wants to make it clear regarding the latest comments by the head of NATO that the withdrawal or forcing-out of American and NATO invading forces from Afghanistan is unquestionable.

Our eighteen-year struggle and Jihad has shown the entire world including America and NATO that the Afghan Muslim and valiant nation will not tolerate foreign occupying and military presence under any circumstance.

The matter of NATO and US desiring or not desiring in Afghanistan is not up to them and this land will most definitely be purged from their ugly presence.

The idea of Afghanistan posing a threat to other countries is not grounded in reality. The Afghans have never taken steps to harm anyone, neither have they interfered in the affairs of other nations nor do they have any intention of doing so in the future.

Exploiting this issue for propaganda and disinformation has prolonged this war for eighteen years, internationally exposed and pushed NATO and US to the brink of defeat therefore it is time that this false idea is reformed and realities given precedence.

The formation of a government, establishing security and developing Afghanistan is a matter concerning the Afghans. No foreign occupying force has any legal right for determine the fate of Afghanistan, interfere in its matters or make comments as a proprietor.

The NATO secretary must learn lessons from the past. Blowing on the fire of war and making such irresponsible statements that only serve to prolong the war is not in the interest of any party.

The ‘Military Times’ website published a report citing the US Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, as saying that the United States wants to find a solution to the Afghan war but that does not involve troop withdrawal.

Mattis made these comments at Reagan National Defense Forum.

The Islamic Emirate wants to remind US Secretary of Defense Mattis and other officials that the valiant Afghan Muslim nation is absolutely determined in forcing the occupying American forces out of Afghanistan.

The political efforts of the Islamic Emirate for the withdrawal of American invaders should not be misconstrued as meaning that the American invaders will not be targeted militarily or that withdrawing and not withdrawing from Afghanistan are options chosen by American Generals!!!

The Islamic Emirate has afforded American an opportunity to end the occupation of Afghanistan and resolve their concerns through political means and at a minimum cost. But if the American officials and generals are of the belief that their occupying forces will remain in Afghanistan and that they will be left alone, then they should reassess their talks.

We will not tire or be disappointed in our Jihad. The Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate shall continue their armed struggle and Jihad until the withdrawal of the last American invader.

The biggest mistake of American military officials is that they do not adopt the path of reasoning and rationale and always use force and stubbornness even when it will not give results. The Afghan Mujahid nation has the right of forcing occupiers from their land through every medium possible and have twice forced out occupiers (British and Soviets) from Afghanistan over the past century. The Americans should read our history and learn a lesson from it.

Today a conference about Afghanistan was convened in Geneva. The conference was also attended by Ashraf Ghani along with his team.

During his speech, Ashraf Ghani declared setting up a negotiation team that will talk with the Islamic Emirate. He also forwarded proposals about negotiations that were beyond his capabilities.

The policy of the Islamic Emirate about negotiations is very clear. The Islamic Emirate, as a representative of its nation, is waging war against the American invaders for the past eighteen years.

The Islamic Emirate, as a representative of the valiant Mujahid Afghan nation and as a sovereign entity, is fighting and negotiating with the American invaders for the success of Jihad.

It considers talking to powerless and foreign imposed entities as a waste of time because impotent sides do not possess the capacity of making decision.

The entire world understands that more than half of Afghanistan is under the control of Islamic Emirate whereas the Kabul administration is installed by the Americans and imposed on the Muslim Afghan nation. This regime is neither the government of the Afghan people and neither can it represent the valiant and Mujahid Afghan nation.

Yesterday the head of the supposed “Peace” Council of the Kabul administration, Karim Khalili, claimed during a gathering that the leaders of the Islamic Emirate have held video conferences with them and are in contact with them via letters.

We categorically reject this propaganda. These claims are made to deceive minds and gain legitimacy for this superficial council.

No leader of the Islamic Emirate has contacted any institution of the Kabul administration nor have there been any video conferences or exchange of letters.

Recently the Islamic Emirate apprehended two forgers who had duped high-ranking officials of the Kabul administration and had repeatedly been awarded by them.

Amid the ongoing crushing Al Khandaq operations, today’s sham and theatrical electoral process of the enemy has mostly failed or is in shambles.

From early morning till midday today, a total of 166 attacks have been carried out by Mujahidin on enemy polling sites, checkpoints, bases and military fortifications throughout the country, resulting in tens of enemy intelligence personnel, police and soldiers killed and wounded.

Hundreds of polling centers have either been shut down, have zero turnout or a small number of votes been casted by regime workers.

Looking at the operations by the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate up until noon time today, we can confidently say that this electoral process was a merely a regime process with only regime workers participating. The rest of the nation announced a boycott and the Mujahideen have also been successful in neutralizing the enemy plot.

The reports, video clips and publications by news sources of Islamic Emirate clearly shows that the theatrical election process has been halted and the enemy is left disappointed.

More details in this regard will be published later.

Keeping that in mind, efforts must be made towards a true and intra-Afghan solution. At the end both sides agreed to continue holding meetings in the future.

Since past several days, Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate have been carrying out operations against Daesh insurgents in Wazir Tangi area of Khowgyani district in Nangarhar province, during which several areas have been purged from Daesh evildoers, forcing them to flee and providing the residents to breathe a sigh of relief.

Seeing defeat of Daesh, American invaders, who always supported Daesh by preventing Mujahideen to take effective measure against them, have yet again carried out drone strikes on Mujahideen positions, martyring around 20 Mujahideen.

Despite American bombardments, Mujahideen have retained the liberated territories and are continuing operations against Daesh.

This comes after American invaders also bombarded Mujahideen positions in order to avoid Daesh’s complete eradication from Qush Tepa district of Jowzjan province some time ago and later rescued them under their supervision via Kabul regime’s helicopters.

Similarly, whenever America realized that Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate are engaged in effective offensive against Daesh in eastern region of the country, they bombarded Mujahideen positions, asserting that American invaders are standing behind Daesh mischief.

The western news agency Reuters published a report where two supposed high-ranking officials of the Islamic Emirate shared information about negotiations, prisoner release and other topics.

The Islamic Emirate has official channels and spokespersons for clarifying its policy. If there ever arises a need to speak or share views with the media, it shall be through the official spokespersons and addresses.

Classifying unknown individuals as high-ranking officials of Islamic Emirate and quoting them in reports is part of western propaganda that seeks to create uncertainty or spread misinformation about issues.

We want media outlets to operate professionally, contact the official channels of the Islamic Emirate for official policy and stance and desist from publishing unfounded reports and fabrications as official viewpoint of the Islamic Emirate.

Such actions only serve to harm the reputation of these media channels and neither can malicious circles possibly spreading such reports achieve the perceived benefits.
