Kabul: Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid on Wednesday said Afghan Ambassador to Tajikistan Muhammad Zahir Agbar appointed by the former government of Afghanistan no longer represents the interests of the country.
“We want strong ties with Tajikistan because it is our neighbour and the most important country for us. [The ambassador] does not represent anyone and his or her expressions have no effect on our relations,” Mujahid told Sputnik.
Earlier this week, Agbar said that the Taliban is more than a threat to Afghanistan, it is an international threat.
The Afghan embassy in Tajikistan does not recognise “terrorists” and will fight against the Taliban in collaboration with the United States and other countries to promote the interests and rights of Afghan nationals, the diplomat said.
