Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has expressed concern over the situation in Afghanistan and urged the international community to rebuild relations with the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
The Pakistani premier in an interview with CNN said that further sanctions on Afghanistan and potential instability will adversely affect the region and will lead to instability in the neighboring countries, especially Pakistan.
“If economic and financial sanctions remain in place, Afghanistan’s banks will run out of money and the banking system will collapse which will lead to instability in Afghanistan that will also stretch to other neighboring countries especially Pakistan.” Imran Khan said.
Meanwhile, the Pakistani PM said that terrorists under the name of refugees have crossed crossing points into Pakistan from Afghanistan.
Imran Khan added that 250,000 thousand people have crossed into Pakistan since the Taliban takeover last year that also includes associates of TTP, Baloch separatists, and ISIS.
Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has not commented on the issue yet, but earlier they had acknowledged that no country will be threatened from Afghanistan’s soil.
Regarding the ISIS-K, the IEA has repeatedly said that the terror group-ISIS-K- has no physical existence and is not a threat to them.
