Defense ministry urges Afghan military students abroad to return home

Afghanistan Acting Defense Minister Mullah Muhammad Yaqoob Mujahid said Tuesday that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) continues working to form a 110,000-member army.
In an interview with a state-owned media outlet, Mujahid stated around 80,000 have been enrolled to join the Afghan new army.
Mujahid also called on Afghan students who went abroad for military training to return home. He also called on former government officers to resume their jobs.
“The country is expected to have a 110,000-member army in the future. I call on all military students who were sent abroad for training by the former government to return to the country and take part in the development of their homeland,” Mujahid said.
Mujahid, meanwhile, denied Pakistan’s claims that Afghanistan land is being used against Islamabad, stating that Kabul has pledged that it does not allow militant groups to operate inside Afghanistan against foreign countries.
“I reject this [claims] and we have promised the world that Afghanistan will not be used against anyone. If the world remains committed, we assure all countries that our land will not be used against them,” Mujahid added.
He noted that ISIS-K militants are not a threat to Afghanistan security as the group has been repressed in the country.The post Defense ministry urges Afghan military students abroad to return home first appeared on Ariana News.
