Taliban Turned Afghanistan into Capital of Terrorism, Says Council of National Resistance


The Council of National Resistance for the Salvation of Afghanistan announced that the killing of the leader of Al-Qaeda in Kabul reaffirmed "the depth of the Taliban's connection with the world's terrorist groups".

In a statement, the council said, "Taliban has turned Afghanistan into the capital of terrorism and a safe haven for cross-border terrorists."

Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al-Qaeda, was killed in an American drone attack in Sherpur area of Kabul city on Sunday.

The Council which consists of several senior Afghan leaders and political parties stressed that the killing of al-Zawahiri eliminated all optimism regarding the change in the nature of Taliban.

The Council has emphasized that the Taliban returned to power because of a complex conspiracy and has turned Afghanistan into the "capital of terrorism".

The Council added that the Taliban has taken the Afghan people hostage by providing safe haven to international criminals.

Earlier, the US State Department issued a statement saying that the Taliban severely violated the Doha agreement by sheltering the leader of Al-Qaeda in Kabul.

According to this council, the Taliban's relationship with other terrorist groups has created a real threat to Afghanistan, the region, and the world.

This council has asked the international community to stand by the Afghan people and refuse to cooperate with the Taliban.
