Selin ATAY-TDO- Amid the chaos and ambiguity in Afghanistan, all the eyes focus on the neighboring country Pakistan which is the key regional actor that plays considerable role in the Afghanistan’s political future.
In order to response many observers’ questions, Pakistan's Ambassador to the European Union, Zaheer A Janjua, made an interview in which he made remarkable comments on n the regional impact of a Taliban administration, and the accusation that his country faced that Pakistan has financially supported the Taliban.
In his speech, Pakistan’s Ambassador to EU explicitly stated that they don’t have any favourites in Afghanistan. “Taliban are their own. And we absolutely do not support the Taliban or finance them”, he added.
Also Zaheer A Janjua asserted that “Afghan people need safety and security” rather than being on constant warfare and violence. Adding that peace in Afghanistan is not vital for the country’s own sake, but also for the regional connectivity and development.
However, according to Pakistan’s Ambassador to EU, there are spoilers, terrorist groups that are not in favor of peace in the Afghanistan and feed the chaos.
