Spokesperson of the Taliban, Zabihullah Mujahid, on Friday said that Pakistan can rest assured it will “not have any threat from Afghanistan”.
Speaking online at an international conference hosted by the Pak-Afghan Youth Forum titled “Rebuilding Afghanistan Together”, at the Pakistan National Council of the Arts in Islamabad, Mujahid said Afghanistan hopes Pakistan’s help to the Afghan nation will continue “in terms of its peace efforts and increasing the bilateral trade and commerce”, according to a statement issued after the event.
He said that the extension of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), linking it with Afghanistan, “is very important”.
Mujahid said that Afghanistan “appreciates the longstanding contributions of Pakistan towards the Afghan people”.
