Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, the deputy minister of Foreign Affairs, said that the intelligence of some regional countries are attempting to destroy the relations between Afghanistan and its neighbors.
However, he didn’t name the countries.
“Some of the intelligence circles try to defame the Afghans because thousands of Afghans exist there and some of them are detained in their prisons. Sometimes the intelligence are trying to defame our country, they kill the detainees and throw them somewhere and then say they were killed in the war,” he said.
Stanekzai told TOLOnews that the interim Afghan government seeks good relations with the international community and that the Afghan soil will not be used against any other country.
“We have committed to the whole world that the Afghan soil will not be used to threaten the security of others,” he said.
Political analysts believe that improving relations between the Afghan interim government and the world will benefit the two sides.
“It is important for the Islamic Emirate to find good paths for political engagement with the international community to solve these controversies,” said Ahmadullah Andar, political analyst.
This comes as the chargés d'affaires of Afghanistan’s embassy in Islamabad, Sardar Ahmad Shakib, met with the head of Pakistan's Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman.
The Afghan embassy in Islamabad said on Twitter that in the meeting both sides discussed removing mistrust between Afghanistan and Pakistan, strengthening friendly bilateral relations, as well as other issues.
