Taliban have taken strong exception to the recent statement made by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi that they cannot run a government.
Talking to Radio Pakistan in Kabul today, prominent Taliban leader Shahabuddin Dilwar said India will soon know that the Taliban can run government affairs smoothly.
He warned India not to interfere in the internal affairs of Afghanistan.
To another question, Shahabuddin Dilawar said Pakistan is our neighbour and a friendly country. He thanked Pakistan for hosting over three million Afghan refugees. He said we are thankful to Pakistan for its services being done for welfare of the refugees.
Shahbuddin Dilawar said Taliban want peaceful ties with all countries based on mutual respect.
