IEA rejects claims of Afghan interference in Kazakhstan unrest

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) on Wednesday said in a statement there was no truth in allegations that Afghanistan was in any way involved in the recent unrest in Kazakhstan.

Some media outlets have quoted Russian officials as saying that some individuals from Afghanistan also took part in the protests in Kazakhstan, read the statement.

“We strongly reject the claim that the Islamic Emirate allows anyone to use Afghanistan’s territory to the detriment of any other country, or to interfere in the affairs of other countries, nor has there been any evidence available,” the statement read.

While we want a reasonable and peaceful solution to the problems in Kazakhstan, we assure all parties that there is no threat to any country from Afghan soil, the statement quoted Zabihullah Mujahid, spokesman of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, as saying.
