Taliban: Sanctions on Haqqani violation of pact by the US

The Taliban have objected to the recent statement issued by the United States on the blacklisted status of the new Interior Minister of Afghanistan, Sirajuddin Haqqani.

According to a statement issued by Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, the US position on continued sanctions is in violation of the Doha agreement signed between the two parties in February last year, Ariana News reported.

“The Islamic Emirate considers this position as a clear violation of the Doha agreement which is neither in the interest of the United States nor Afghanistan,” the statement read.

The Taliban also objected to recent comments made about Haqqani network’s Sirajudin Haqqani, who has been appointed as the Islamic Emirate’s acting Interior Minister, the report said.

Haqqani is blacklisted by the US and carries a $10 million bounty on his head.
“The family of honorable Haqqani Sahib is part of Islamic Emirate and does not have a separate name or organizational setup.

“Similarly, in Doha Agreement all officials of the Islamic Emirate without any exception were part of interaction with the US and should have been removed from the UN and US blacklists, a demand which still remains valid,” the statement read.

“That America and other countries are making such provocative statements and trying to meddle [in] the internal affairs of Afghanistan, the Islamic Emirate condemns it in the strongest terms.

“Such remarks by US officials are a repetition of past failed experiments and such positions detrimental for America. We urge that these incorrect policies be immediately reversed through diplomatic interactions,” it added.
