Islamabad is Trying to Create Distrust Between Kabul and Beijing: Mujahid

KABUL, MAY 31: The Islamic Emirate said that Islamabad is attempting to create distrust between Kabul and Beijing. Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate, in response to the Pakistani Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ statement about the perpetrators of the attack on Chinese citizens in Pakistan, said that this issue has nothing to do with Afghanistan and Pakistan should ensure its own security.

The spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate said: “Targeting Chinese nationals in Pakistan is related to Pakistan and has nothing to do with Afghanistan. The report published by Pakistanis is an attempt to create distrust between China and Afghanistan. We have repeatedly denied this, and it is also illogical.”

Earlier, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan released a statement saying that investigations regarding the attack on Chinese citizens have been shared with the Islamic Emirate and called for cooperation from the interim government in this matter.

“Pakistan has no proof for this matter and this visit is meaningless. They will achieve nothing, and this claim is not true. They want to show the Chinese that we made an official visit to Afghanistan to clarify the issue,” said Kamran Aman, a political analyst.

At the same time, some analysts said that sharing information with each other is effective in solving political challenges; however, Pakistan should not link the challenges arising in that country to Afghanistan.

“If issues are shared, it is better for ensuring security and solving problems; but if Pakistan wants to portray itself as innocent in this matter and blame the Afghan government, this is not right,” said Sayed Qaribullah Sadat, a political analyst.

Pakistan officials have repeatedly made similar claims; however, the Islamic Emirate has denied these claims, pledging that Afghan soil will not be used against any country.
