Kabul (Web Desk): Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid has said the Dohal deal was signed with the US, not Pakistan.
In an interview with BBC Pashto, Zabihullah Mujahid, in response to the Pakistan’s Defence Minister’s remarks that Afghanistan is not fulfilling its obligations under the deal, had said that they didn’t sign the peace accord with Islamabad. But at the same time, he claimed that Afghan soil was not being used for attacks in Pakistan, as the nation was “a Muslim and brother country”.
Pakistan has witnessed a sharp spike in terrorism across the country which it believes is perpetrated by the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) despite assurances by their benefactors of reining in the militant group.
Last week, Pakistan Army said it was seriously concerned that militants had found safe havens in the neighbouring nation.
