KABUL (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Interior on Monday said the Tahreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) was not present Afghanistan and Daesh or Islamic State has been vanquished.

MoI spokesman Murfti Abdul Matin Qane addressed a press conference about the recent visit of acting Interior Minister Sirajuddin Haqqani to northern provinces.

He said the purpose of Haqqani’s trip to northern provinces was to strengthen national unity, evaluate and implement order of the leadership of the IEA, and implementation of public welfare projects and to hear problems of the people.

Qane said Haqqani went to Baghlan, Samangan, Balkh, Sari Pul, Jawzjan, Faryab, Kunduz and Takhar provinces and had meetings with civil and military officials, religious scholars and elders, ethnic leaders and youth of these provinces.

Haqqani also mentioned women’s rights during his trip and said “for a long time, women were deprived of inheritance right and forced to marry without their consent, but with the re-establishment of the Islamic Emirate, women’s Shariah rights were secured.”

Qane went on to say that the Acting Minister of Interior and his delegation went to Jawzjan province to pay respects to the “martyrs of Dashti Laili” and instructed officials to build a mosque and a memorial minaret in the memory of the martyrs.

Responding to a quarry, Qane said no group including the TTP was present in Afghanistan, and ISIS group had been suppressed in Afghanistan and had no “visible” presence.

About Waziristan refugees, he said: “About six or seven years ago, when problems arose in Waziristan, the refugees came to Afghanistan, of course they have rights according to international laws, and we are trying to provide them with all facilities. Our request to the International Organization for Migration and Pakistan is to solve the problems of these migrants so that they can return to their country.”

The MoI spokesman emphasized that the Islamic Emirate wanted good relations with all countries, including the United States, considering its national interests, and assured that Afghanistan’s soil will not be used against any country.

The US special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction (SIGAR) issued its quarterly report about Afghanistan, saying several terrorist groups including Al Qaeda, Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan and IS-K were enjoying “a greater freedom of movement” in Afghanistan owing to the absence of an effective Taliban security strategy.

However, Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid rejected the SIGAR report as propaganda, saying the Afghans lived in complete peace and no one was allowed to use Afghanistan’s soil against others.
