Under the leadership of the leader of the Northern Alliance, Ahmed Masood, Taliban militants are seen badly surrounded by bloody violence in the Panjshir Valley, which has become a stronghold of the insurgents. The Foreign Ministry of Afghanistan’s very important neighbor Iran has given a stern warning to the Taliban and asked not to cross the Lakshman Rekha. Iran said it was investigating Pakistan’s interference in Panjshir. He said the “martyrdom” of Panjshir’s commanders is deeply disappointing and Iran condemns last night’s attacks in the strongest terms.
The Tehran Times quoted Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Syed Khatib Zadeh as saying, “Pakistani interference during the Panjshir attack is being investigated.” Iran believes that intra-Afghan dialogue is the only solution to the Afghan problem. He warned, ‘I strongly caution that not all cross the Lakshman Rekha and that the responsibilities under international law must be considered.’
‘Keeping eye on developments in Afghanistan’
“Iran is closely monitoring developments in Afghanistan,” the Iranian spokesman said. He said the history of Afghanistan shows that the result of direct or indirect intervention is only the defeat of the aggressor. Iran’s warning comes at a time when Panjshir rebels have alleged that the Pakistani army provided air support to the Taliban to win. Not only this, he said that the Taliban carried out the genocide with the help of Pakistan.
In this Taliban-Pakistani attack, insurgent leader Ahmed Masood of Tajik origin has suffered a major setback and his spokesman Faheem Dashti and top commander General Sahib Abdul Wadud Jhor were killed. After Masood moved to a safe place, the Taliban claimed on Monday morning that they had completely captured Panjshir. Meanwhile, in a tweet from Masood’s Twitter handle, serious allegations have been made against Pakistan. Masood said that Taliban is not fighting a war with us but it is Pakistan Army and ISI which is leading them. The Taliban are not strong enough to compete with us but the Pakistani army is cooperating with them.
Iran appeals for elections
The Taliban may have captured Afghanistan, but its bad days are not taking the name of the end. On the one hand a large number of his fighters have been killed and on the other hand he is unable to form the government. Now the group has got the next blow from Iran. Iran has called for the formation of a people-elected government in Afghanistan.
Iran has expressed hope that elections are vital for Afghanistan’s successful future and that peace will be restored in the country. Iran’s President Ibrahim Raisi, while talking to the media, said that a government should be formed in Afghanistan, which is elected by the votes and will of the people. We support the government elected by the people.
