New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Dhabīḥ Allah Mujāhid: “Reaction Regarding the Report By the U.S. Defense Department”

l_DzlA8Q

The US Department of Defense in its report to the congress stated that according to reports of other organizations, members of Al Qaeda organization continued to support the Islamic Emirate in attacks and other such allegations.

The Islamic Emirate strongly rejects this report and considers such remarks a campaign promoting specific and malicious objectives.

Our Mujahideen are strong enough to combat the enemy and are not in need of support from any foreign side or organization.

Such provocative reports only serve to make Afghans even more skeptical about US intentions for peace.

American officials, politicians and astute parties must not fall into the trap of baseless allegations and not become victims of false reports and information pushed by some warmongering circles present within the American military apparatus.

The Islamic Emirate has committed itself in the Doha agreement to preventing harm to the United States and its allies from Afghan soil.

We remain committed to the aforementioned agreement and have so far implemented and will continue to honor our part of the agreement.

New release from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Dhabīḥ Allah Mujāhid: “Remarks Concerning the Completion of the First Phase (135 Days) Since Signing of the Agreement”

l_DzlA8Q

As 135-days since signing of the Doha agreement between the United States of America and Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan come to a close, we would like to communicate the following points:

– It is a welcome and positive step that the United States and its foreign allies have reduced the number of their forces and vacated five bases in accordance with their commitments under the agreement.

– The delay in the completion of the first condition of the agreement – the prisoner release process – in this period is very unfortunate due to it becoming a cause for the delay of intra-Afghan negotiations and comprehensive peace. There should currently have been even more prisoners released alongside the provided list.

– The issue of blacklisting of the leaders of the Islamic Emirate remaining unresolved is also a cause for concern that must be given serious consideration and practical steps taken.

– No attacks have been recorded against foreign forces by the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate following the agreement which shows that the Islamic Emirate is committed to the contents of the agreement.

– It is unfortunate that although there is an explicit provision in the agreement that halts all types of military movements outside active combat zones, the American forces and their internal supporters over the course of these 135 days have frequently carried out bombings in non-combat zones, offensive operations by the Kabul administration forces have been supported and Kabul administration aircrafts have been flown by American pilots to carry out airstrikes against civilians, Mujahideen and public infrastructure.

In just the past ten days, the Americans and their internal supporters have repeatedly carried out drone strikes and bombings in Logar, Badghis, Maidan Wardak, Ghani, Zabul, Uruzgan, Helmand and Kandahar and carried out two raids. These all are blatant violations of the agreement and a deliberate attempt at provoking the Mujahideen towards large-scale attacks. The Islamic Emirate condemns all these attacks and demands its immediate suspension.

– Yesterday’s attack in Samangan and similar escalation of violence in other areas are a reaction to the launch of operations by the Kabul administration, ruthless attacks on civilians like in Sangin district of Helmand and the violations committed by the American forces. These cannot be classified as actions but as reactions.

– The Islamic Emirate again calls on America and related sides that the swift and complete implementation of the Doha agreement is in the interest of everyone. This opportunity must sincerity be taken advantage of, the process not obstructed nor delayed and the situation stopped from spiraling towards further mistrust, peril and problems.

The American side must not afford a very small specific circle an opportunity to muddy water and catch fish, rather the interest, views and demands of the entire nation must be respected.

New release from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Dhabīḥ Allah Mujāhid: “Remarks Regarding Report By The US Defense Department”

l_DzlA8Q

A report by the US Department of Defense (Pentagon) compiled for the congress stated that the Islamic Emirate continues to support Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent.

We strongly reject this report and consider it propaganda and unsubstantiated for the following reasons:

– The Islamic Emirate, in line with its own policy, does not interfere in the affairs other countries hence it does not seek to support anyone working outside the borders of Afghanistan in India or any other country.

– Afghanistan is under the direct occupation of America and its allies for the past nineteen years and the Afghans under the leadership of the Islamic Emirate are fighting a great war of independence and establishment of an Islamic government. How is it then possible that we support anyone outside our borders when we ourselves are engaged in such a burdensome war?

– The Islamic Emirate signed an agreement with the United States on the 29th February 2020 and is currently using all means at its disposal for its implementation and bringing comprehensive peace to Afghanistan.

On the aforementioned grounds, the Islamic Emirate does not support any foreign organization in the Indian Subcontinent or any other place.

It is very unfortunate the defense department has published such an irresponsible report or propaganda is conducted to confuse common thinking in such a sensitive time.

We call on American officials to remain committed to the Doha agreement, end propaganda based on false information and stop individuals in the US military apparatus from propaganda who still possibly seek war in Afghanistan for their own personal interests or the interests of defense companies.

New release from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Dhabīḥ Allah Mujāhid: “Remarks Concerning Allegations By Some Western Media Outlets”

l_DzlA8Q

A number of western media outlets have published reports alleging that the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate received payments from Russia for killing American troops and other such rumors.

We strongly reject this allegation. The nineteen-year Jihad of the Islamic Emirate is not indebted to the beneficence of any intelligence organ or foreign country and neither is the Islamic Emirate in need of anyone in specifying objectives.

The Islamic Emirate has made use of weapons, facilities and tools in its nineteen-year Jihad that were already present in Afghanistan or are war spoils frequently seized from the opposition in battles.

The American forces suffered most of their losses from simple plastic bottles that were filled by the Afghans in their own homes with their own homemade explosives.

These rumors are being circulated to create hurdles for the departure of American troops, to weaken and confuse advocates of peace in America and to attribute the great heroism and achievements of the Afghans to foreigner circles.

We reassure our nation and the entire world that the Islamic Emirate is not a tool of anyone nor is it employed for foreign agendas rather it has sacrificed to protect its religion, land and greater interests and has accomplished everything with its own hands and initiative.

Such rumors can never change the stance of the Islamic Emirate. We believe that implementation of the agreement signed with the United States of America will ensure the goal of achieving comprehensive peace and we remain committed to it in the future just as we have completely acted upon it so far.

New release from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Dhabīḥ Allah Mujāhid: “Remarks Concerning Statement By The European Council”

l_DzlA8Q

We welcome the statement by the European Council backing the peace efforts in Afghanistan, however, this statement contains phrases that violate the right of sovereignty of Afghans. It must be said that foreign imposed systems have always produced war and devastation in our homeland and have never been accepted by Afghans. We have constantly shown commitment to non-interference in the internal affairs of others in our statements and on the basis of this international principle, we also expect others to not interfere in our internal affairs nor complicate the issue of Afghanistan even further.

On the basis of the agreement with the United States, American allies are also bound to the commitment of non-interference in the internal affairs of Afghanistan. The future governance system shall be chosen by the Afghans in intra-Afghan negotiations and this is a legitimate right reserved by the Afghans. It is hoped that all parties will honor their commitments, adhere to the international principle of non-interference and not harm the peace process.

New video message from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “An Exclusive Interview With the Spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, Dhabīḥ Allah Mujāhid, To Explain the Broadcasting Policy of the Islamic Emirate”

New release from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Dhabīḥ Allah Mujāhid: “Remarks Concerning the Negotiation Team Announced in Kabul”

l_DzlA8Q

All our compatriots and the world is aware that the Islamic Emirate has repeatedly shown its willingness to hold intra-Afghan negotiations with all influential Afghan sides in line with the agreement however the other sides have so far failed in putting together an effective, pro-peace and inclusive team.

Now as the Kabul administration has announced a team, we would like to make the following points:

1 – The policy of the Islamic Emirate from the very beginning has been that the Kabul administration may participate in intra-Afghan negotiations as a part of other Afghan sides.

But as the team is announced by the Kabul administration it thus violates our principled policy and the agreement concluded with America.

2 – In order to reach true and lasting peace, the aforementioned team must be agreed upon by all effective Afghan sides so that it can represent all sides however majority of other sides have rejected the current announced team.

Considering the mentioned points, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan would once again like to clarify its stance that impediments must not be created for intra-Afghan negotiations nor must a single group try to monopolize the issue of an entire country.

We shall only sit for talks with a negotiation team that conforms with our agreements and is constituted in accordance with the laid out principles, Allah willing.

New release from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Dhabīḥ Allah Mujāhid: “U.S. President Donald Trump Holds Phone Conversation With Mullā ‘Abd al-Ghanī Barādar”

l_DzlA8Q

At around 05:40 pm Qatari time, the President of the United States of America held a 35 minute phone conversation with the Political Deputy and Chief of Political Office of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the respected Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar.

In the presence of a number of members of the negotiation team and Dr. Zalmay Khalilzad, Mullah Baradar welcomed the first contact of the US President and added:

I, as the representative of the Islamic Emirate and the Afghan people, want to assure you that if the United States honors the agreement concluded with us then we will have positive future bilateral relations.

Mullah Baradar said:

Mr. President!

Take determined actions in regards to the withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan and do not allow anyone to take actions that violate the terms of the agreement thus embroiling you even further in this prolonged war.

Mullah Baradar further said that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is a strong political and military force that aims and has the potential of maintaining positive bilateral relations with you and other world countries.

Mullah Sahib said that national sovereignty and establishing a government of our own choosing in our homeland is the legitimate right of Afghans therefore terms of the agreement must immediately be implemented, comprehensive peace established and the Afghan people given their basic rights.

The Political Deputy of the Islamic Emirate said:

It befits a developed country like the United States to give complete rehabilitation assistance to a war-torn Afghanistan and this is an appropriate actions that shall positively effect the status of the United States.

The President of the United States Donal Trump said:

It is a pleasure to talk to you. You are a tough people and have a great country and I understand that you are fighting for your homeland. We have been there for 19 years and that is a very long time and withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan now is in the interest of everyone.

President Trump added:

My Secretary of State shall soon talk with Ashraf Ghani in order to remove all hurdles facing the intra-Afghan negotiations.

He said that we shall take complete part in the future rehabilitation of Afghanistan.

Extensive discussions were also held about the implementation of the agreement concluded by both sides.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Dhabīḥ Allah Mujāhid: “Remarks Concerning the Announcement of Ashraf Ghani As Winner of Fake Elections

l_DzlA8Q

According to reports the supposed ‘Elections Commission’ has once against announced Ashraf Ghani as the head of the Kabul administration.

As the Islamic Emirate has rejected the fake and staged elections drama under the shadow of occupation in its entirety, it similarly rejects this meaningless appointment and considers it a failed effort at throwing dust in the eyes of the nation.

The Muslim Afghan nation shall make decisions about their domestic affairs and chart their own political course following the end of occupation – a time when they shall attain their most cherished desire of establishing a strong Islamic government.

Holding elections and announcing oneself a president under occupation shall never remedy the problems of our Muslim Afghan nation just as it has failed to do so over the past nineteen years.

Just as announcing Ashraf Ghani a president under the cover of fake elections is unlawful and has no legal basis, it is also in conflict with the contents of the ongoing peace process while keeping in mind the current sensitive circumstances of the Afghan issue.

Like the nineteen years past, our sacred Jihad shall continue until the occupation is brought to an end and all Afghans are afforded an opportunity to live a peaceful and prosperous life in an independent and pure Islamic government.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Aghanistan’s Zabīh Allah Mujāhid: “Clarification Concerning Propaganda About the Ceasefire”

l_DzlA8Q

For the past few days, a number of media outlets have been publishing false and baseless reports about a ceasefire by the Islamic Emirate.

Propaganda by some outlets has even reached heights of supposed schism within the Islamic Emirate on the issue of a ceasefire.

The reality of the situation is that the Islamic Emirate has no intention of declaring a ceasefire. The United States has asked for a reduction in the scale and intensity of violence and discussions being held by the Islamic Emirate are revolving solely around this specific issue.

The leader of the Islamic Emirate has not yet issued a final decree and neither is there any differences within the Islamic Emirate related to this issue.

It is hoped that our compatriots pay no heed to the malicious reports being propagated by the enemy media.

Some intelligence circles are utilizing the media in an effort to generate anxiety, false optimism and sabotage the ongoing negotiations process through the dissemination of misleading information.

The Islamic Emirate will take every necessary and appropriate step that ensures the higher interests and Jihadi aspirations of our homeland in the light of Islamic Shariah in both the military and political fronts, Allah willing.

The Islamic Emirate shall keep its nation informed of any progress through its official channels.
