Taliban Leadership Blasts Pakistan For Linking Afghan Settlement With Kashmir Crisis



Pakistan PM Imran Khan ruled out the strategy of supporting militant groups as an option in the wake of India’s abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, saying that doing so would be detrimental to the cause. Meanwhile, The Taliban clearly stated that the India-Pakistan rift over Kashmir should not be linked with the situation in Afghanistan.

“The threat is very real. We will have to respond to such a scenario and this is how we have seen wars starting between nations,” PM Imran told a group of senior journalists.

Khan said it appeared that US President Donald Trump’s mediation offer triggered India to make the hasty decision of depriving Kashmir people of its special status by revoking Article 370 its constitution.

US Supports Direct Dialogue Between India and Pakistan To Resolve Kashmir Dispute

Earlier, in an analysis by the EurAsian Times, the political experts stated that the Afghanistan War may soon to come to an end as the US and Taliban are almost ready to sign a peace deal. The Taliban and the US have reconciled and resolved their discord, but what will happen to all the terrorists who were fighting the US forces in Afghanistan? 

Pakistan PM Imran Khan during his US visit and speaking at the United States Institute of Peace admitted that there are 30,000 to 40,000 militants, trained in Afghanistan and Kashmir, actively operating from the country. Even though many experts feared that Islamabad will try to push the militants towards Kashmir, however both Imran Khan and Taliban leadership said Afghan Peace Process has nothing to do with Kashmir.

Don’t Link Afghanistan with Kashmir: Taliban

The Taliban clearly stated that the India-Pakistan rift over Kashmir should not be linked with the situation in Afghanistan.

”Linking the issue of Kashmir with that of Afghanistan by some parties will not aid in improving the crisis at hand because the issue of Afghanistan is not related nor should Afghanistan be turned into the theatre of competition between other countries,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahed said in a statement.

This comes as Afghans reacted angrily on social media following remarks by Pakistan’s opposition leader in the Parliament on Tuesday.

“What kind of a deal is this that the Afghans enjoy and celebrate peace in Kabul, but in Kashmir, blood is shed? No, this is not acceptable for us,” said Shahbaz Sharif, a leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz party.

Meanwhile, the Embassy of Pakistan in Kabul on Thursday clarified that the rift over Kashmir would not affect the peace drive in Afghanistan. Addressing a news conference, Zahid Nasrullah Khan, ambassador of Pakistan, said:

“The issue of Kashmir has nothing to do with the violence in Afghanistan and it is unfortunately still unresolved, despite the so many sacrifices and acts of human rights abuses against the people of Jammu and Kashmir.”
