Foreign Affairs Pak clarifies brutality against the Taliban, accuses India of terrorist activities

Foreign Affairs Minister Shah Mahmoud Qureshi from Pakistan tried to exonerate the Taliban from the high levels of bloodshed in Afghanistan, accusing India on Friday of “carrying out terrorist activities” from Afghanistan.

Qureshi made the comments in an interview with Tolo News from Afghanistan, excerpts from which were posted on the Twitter feed on the channel. He also tried to question India's importance in Afghanistan simply because the two countries don't have a border.

In the context of the high levels of violence in Afghanistan, Qureshi responded: "When people think of the Taliban, they think of bombs and targeted killings of government leaders. “Who’s responsible for that? Again, if you try and create this impression that the violence is high because of the Taliban...again, that would be an exaggeration. Why do I say that? Aren’t there other elements over there who are playing the role of a spoiler?” 

When asked about the forces behind the violence, he said: “Daesh, like forces within Afghanistan...who gain from the war economy, who want to perpetuate their power, who are not seeing beyond their nose and just want to hang on to power.”

Qureshi, speaking of India's involvement in Afghanistan, attempted to continue the legend that more than four indigenous consulates exist on Afghan territory instigated by the Pakistani security institution. He also said that India's role in Afghanistan is “larger than it ought to be and that India is carrying out terrorist activities from Afghan soil". 

“On paper, possibly four,” he answered when asked how many Indian consulates there are in Afghanistan.
