A top aide to President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has called for the establishment of a national resistance against the interference of Pakistan in the country, insisting that the Taliban group and other terror groups fighting in the country are slaves who are fighting for the interests of the outsiders.
Ahmad Zia Massoud, the presidential envoy for better governance, said the current year will most probably be the end of the fighting for the Taliban group in the country.
He was speaking during a gathering in capital Kabul to mark the 24th victory of Mujahideen against the Soviet-backed regime in the country.
Massoud further added that Pakistan managed to create divisions in the country following the victory of Mujahideen and tried to establish a ‘stooge’ government in Afghanistan.
However, he warned that the monopoly of power in Afghanistan has never gained ground and the greatest powers have been defeated through national resistance.
Massoud also warned that those thinking to monopolize power will face the same fate as the Soviet forces faced and called on Mujahideen leaders to get organized, calling the Mujahideen a major movement in the country.
In other parts of his speech, Massoud said the Taliban group does not believe in peace process, noting his earlier remarks regarding the reconciliation efforts.
He hailed the government’s change of strategy towards the militant groups and called on the government to hang the Taliban prisoners so that their execution become a lesson for the other criminals.
The remarks by Massoud comes as the Afghan officials have long been criticizing Pakistan for remaining reckless to take actions against the anti-government armed militant groups based in the country.
President Ghani asked Pakistan last week to take actions against the leadership of Taliban group in Peshawar and Quetta cities, warning that Afghanistan will take the issue to international organizations including UN Security Council if no actions were taken in this regard. -KP
