Minister of Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry has welcome a statement from the Taliban that it would not allow Afghanistan’s soil to foster conflict.

The minister was giving his reaction while speaking to Turkish news agency TRT World.

Since the US withdrawal and return of the Afghan Taliban there have been fears that the country will become a safe haven for or enabler of radical or extremist groups. After all, ISIS and al Qaeda have found sympathies in Afghanistan.

Chaudhry said the government is working closely with groups within Afghanistan.

“One of the timely conditions we have put forward is that the land should not be used for terrorism against any other country and should not become a hub of any terrorist organization at any cost,” he said.

He went on to add that India cannot finance terrorist organizations in Afghanistan to carry out attacks in Pakistan due to the recent events.
