We welcome the statement by the European Council backing the peace efforts in Afghanistan, however, this statement contains phrases that violate the right of sovereignty of Afghans. It must be said that foreign-imposed systems have always produced war and devastation in our homeland and have never been accepted by Afghans. We have constantly shown a commitment to non-interference in the internal affairs of others in our statements and on the basis of this international principle, we also expect others to not interfere in our internal affairs nor complicate the issue of Afghanistan even further.
On the basis of the agreement with the United States, American allies are also bound to the commitment of non-interference in the internal affairs of Afghanistan. The future governance system shall be chosen by the Afghans in intra-Afghan negotiations and this is a legitimate right reserved by the Afghans. It is hoped that all parties will honor their commitments, adhere to the international principle of non-interference and not harm the peace process.
