As the US President recently made vague remarks about implementation of the Doha agreement and withdrawal of all foreign troops, and moreover, some NATO member states are seeking to extend the occupation of Afghanistan, the Islamic Emirate would like to clarify its stance regarding the issue as following:
The Doha agreement is the most sensible and shortest path to ending the past twenty-year war between Afghanistan and America and establishing a peaceful Afghanistan.
The Islamic Emirate is firmly committed to its undertakings outlined in the agreement, and wants the American side to also remain firmly committed to the Doha agreement and not wasting this historic opportunity due to flawed advice and incitement by warmongering circles.
If, God forbid, all foreign troops not withdraw from Afghanistan on the specified date in line with the Doha agreement, undoubtedly it will be considered a violation of the accord by America for which it shall be held liable and which shall also harm its international standing.
In such a case, the Islamic Emirate – as a representative of the believing, valiant and Mujahid Afghan nation – will be compelled to defend its religion and homeland and continue its Jihad and armed struggle against foreign forces to liberate its country.
All responsibility for the prolongation of war, death and destruction will be on the shoulders of those whom committed this violation.
The resolve and seriousness of the people of Afghanistan must not be tested any further, and reason and logic must prevail to end the war.
Afghanistan is the home of Afghans, the establishment of whatever type of government is the lawful right of its citizens, no other nation can impose upon them a government or system from abroad, nor do they reserve such a right.
