Taliban: “No negotiations with invaders and their puppets”

Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan

No negotiations with invaders and their puppets

16-03-2009

In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan rejects reports suggestion that Amir-ul-Momineen (Leader of the Believers) Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid (May Allah preserve him) has given his approval for talks aimed at ending the war in Afghanistan and has allowed his representatives to attend Saudi-sponsored peace negotiations.

These are all false and baseless reports. Ours is the same old stand there is no other way except jihad in Afghanistan until* the invader forces are present in Afghanistan. If you wait for 3000 years, our stand is the same that Taliban will never hold talks in presence of invader forces in Afghanistan. The Taliban have not met with Afghan president, Hamid Karzai brother Qayum Karzai, as it is being claimed by Qayum Karzai.

The false reports

“Taliban chief backs Afghan peace talks

THE TALIBAN leader, Mullah Omar, has given his approval for talks aimed at ending the war in Afghanistan and has allowed his representatives to attend Saudi-sponsored peace negotiations.

“Mullah Omar has given the green light to talks,” said one of the mediators, Abdullah Anas, a former friend of Osama Bin Laden who used to fight in Afghanistan but now lives in London.

One of those negotiating for the Afghan government confirmed: “It’s extremely sensitive but we have been in contact both with Mullah Omar’s direct representatives and commanders from the front line.”

The breakthrough emerged after President Barack Obama admitted that US-led forces are not winning the war in Afghanistan and called for negotiations with “moderate Taliban”.

“A big, big step has happened,” Anas said. “For the first time, there is a language of . . . peace on both sides.”

His words were echoed by the brother of the Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, who has been attending talks on his behalf. “I have been meeting with Taliban for the last five days and I can tell you Obama’s words have created enormous optimism,” said Qayum Karzai. “There is no other way left but talks. All sides know that more fighting is not the way.”
