Muslimyar blames foreign meddling on US policies

Muslimyar blames foreign meddling on US policies

Jan 03, 2017 - 19:14

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Senate Chairman Fazl Hadi Muslimyar on Tuesday said regional countries were interfering in Afghanistaninfo-icon due to wrong policies of the United States.

Muslimyar told Tuesday’s session of the Meshrgano Jirgainfo-icon or upper house that recent remarks of the Russian special envoy, Zamir Kabulov, and a trilateral meeting in Moscow were clear interference in Afghanistan’s internal affairs.

About the meeting involving Russia, Pakistaninfo-icon and China, Muslimyar said: “These sessions obviously amount to intervening in Afghanistan’s affairs.”

He said if Afghanistan had not allied with the US, Kabulov and regional countries wouldn’t have intervened in Afghanistan.

No one from Afghanistan was invited to the Moscow meeting that held on December 27.

The meeting decided to push for delisting some Talibaninfo-icon leaders from the United Nations blacklist. The Taliban also welcomed the announcement.

Kabulov last month told a news agency that Russia had contacted the Taliban to jointly fight the common enemy Daesh.

“US wrong policies and the Afghans’ poverty and urgency allow regional countries to interfere in Afghanistan and establish contact with anti-government insurgents. We say it again that it is a shame for the Taliban to fight against Muslims with receiving arms from non-Muslims.”

He said the house had decided to summon National Security Advisor Mohammad Hanif Atmar and share the government’s view on these matters with public representatives.

An angry Muslimyar asked the government to prepare basic foreign policy lines and submit them to the National Assembly for approval so Afghanistan could establish relations with countries based on them.

He also appreciated the suspension the telecom minister, saying the matter shall be publicly and in the presence of media outlets investigated so that others could learn a lesson.
