Lt Gen Hameed is the first high-ranking foreign official to visit Afghanistan since the Taliban captured Kabul in mid-August. According to Afghanistan’s ‘Khama News’, Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said that the group would not allow any country, including Pakistan, to interfere in Afghanistan’s internal affairs.

Taliban spokesman Mujahid said the Taliban assured Islamabad that Afghanistan’s land would not be used against Pakistan.

Hameed came to Afghanistan to improve bilateral relations: Taliban

The Taliban said on Sunday that Hameed had come to Afghanistan to improve bilateral relations between Kabul and Islamabad. Ahmadullah Wasik, deputy head of the Taliban’s Cultural Commission, said Taliban leaders spoke to Lieutenant General Hameed about bilateral ties and the problems faced by Afghan travelers at the Torkham and Spin Boldak passes between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Tolo News quoted Wasik as saying, “Pakistan authorities have come to the border areas and especially in Torkham and Spin Boldak to solve the problems of Afghan travelers. They wanted (his visit to Kabul) and we accepted.” Pakistan on Thursday temporarily closed the Chaman border crossing, the second largest commercial border crossing along the Afghanistan border, for security reasons. It is the second largest center adjoining Afghanistan after Torkham commercial city in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Mujahid said the delegation that visited Kabul said the crossing had been closed due to security concerns related to the release of prisoners in Afghanistan and urged for a ban on those wishing to enter or leave the country. Citing sources close to Hizb-e-Islami party leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, the channel said that Pakistan’s intelligence chief also met him and discussed the current situation in the country.
