The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) on Sunday rejected reports it asked Pakistan to give them funds to disarm and relocate Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) fighters.
The Express Tribune newspaper in Pakistan reported on Friday that IEA proposed a plan to control TTP and it envisaged disarming TTP fighters and moving them away from the Afghanistan-Pakistan border areas.
The report stated that IEA asked Pakistan to fund the proposal and bear the costs of rehabilitating the TTP.
IEA’s spokesman, however, rejected the report, saying it had not made any such request.
“What is very clear is that we ourselves will not allow the soil of Afghanistan to be used against another country, especially our neighbors. In this regard, we will fully utilize our resources. InshaAllah, our efforts will be enough. Asking for money is not true,” Zabihullah Mujahid said.
