Afghanistan Prime Minister Mullah Hasan Akhund on Monday told Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman that Kabul “did not intend to harm” Pakistan or any other country.
The Afghan premier passed these remarks during a meeting with an 11-member delegation led by Fazl, who arrived in Kabul a day earlier on the Afghan interim government’s invitation.
A statement issued by the Afghan government spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid quoted Mullah Hasan as saying that the “Islamic Emirate will not allow anyone to pose a threat to any country”.
Meanwhile, Afghan acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi mentioned “the problems of Afghan traders” and the issues created by Pakistani officials in transit trade and exports.
Muttaqi was quoted as saying that “trade and bilateral economic issues should not be sacrificed for political purposes”.
The statement said Fazl described the “victory of the Islamic Emirate against the invasion as a major success and congratulated the people of Afghanistan”.
