The Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid on Monday at a press conference in Kabul said the war in the country has ended and they hope Afghanistan will become a stable country.
Mujahid appeared at the press conference hours after the Taliban in a statement on Monday morning announced that its forces had completely captured Panjshir province.
Due to communication problems, TOLOnews has so far not been able to obtain comments from the Resistance Front in this regard.
Mujahid said they wanted to resolve the issue of Panjshir via dialogue, but the talks failed.
On the future government, Mujahid said it will be announced soon, but will likely act as a caretaker government to allow changes and reforms.
When asked about the fate of the Afghan security and defense forces, Mujahid responded that the forces trained in the last 20 years will be asked to rejoin security departments alongside the Taliban forces.
Speaking about the country’s infrastructure and development, Mujahid said the “invaders” will never reconstruct Afghanistan and that it is the job of the people of Afghanistan and they should do it.
He also said technical teams from Qatar and Turkey and a United Arab Emirate company are working to normalize operations at Kabul airport.
On Afghanistan’s foreign relations, Mujahid said the Taliban wants good relations with the world, especially with China as it is a big economic power and it can help Afghanistan in reconstruction and development.
Mujahid also responded to reporters’ questions about the visit of the Pakistani delegation to Kabul that included ISI chief Faiz Hamid, saying Pakistan had repeatedly requested to make such a visit Kabul, and the Taliban recently agreed.
According to Mujahid, Pakistan is worried about the release of prisoners in Afghanistan as some may belong to Pakistan and may try to infiltrate into Pakistan. Mujahid said that the Taliban has assured them that no one will be allowed to threaten any country from Afghan territory.
