Taliban "unaware" of their plan to open political office in Qatar
Peshawar, Sept 14(ANI): The Afghan Taliban have said they are 'unaware' about the opening of any political office in Qatar.
Some media reports said on Tuesday that the Taliban had been allowed to open their political office in Qatar.
The initiative follows over a year of intermittent informal talks between Western diplomats and Tayyab Agha, a senior representative of the Taliban, according to a media report.
"These are media reports. We are unaware about it. Nobody has contacted us in this regard. Any further reaction will not be correct," The News quoted Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, as saying while talking to the Afghan Islamic Press (AIP).
However, sources close to the Taliban told the AIP that the Taliban leadership had decided to organise and increase political activities along with their stepped-up military actions.
According to the report, the sources said that the Taliban might mull opening office in Qatar to openly join political activities.
The sources maintained that Taliban leader Mullah Muhammad Omar had appointed his former spokesman, Tayyab Agha, as in-charge of Taliban Islamic Emirate political committee.
If the Taliban agreed to open political office in Qatar, Tayyab Agha would be appointed as its in-charge because he is trusted and is also conversant with English language, the souces added.
Some months back, there were rumours that Taliban would open their political office in Turkey. However, Taliban had also rejected those reports. (ANI)
