‘Nothing insulting about PM Imran’s remarks: Muttaqi

74

Afghanistan’s acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi disapproved on Monday former president Hamid Karzai’s statement wherein the latter rebuked Prime Minister Imran Khan for attributing the prevalent situation in the war-torn country to years of “corruption” by previous governments.

Prime Minister Imran made the remarks while addressing the 17th extraordinary session of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’s Council (OIC) of Foreign Ministers in Islamabad on Sunday, where he also said that Pakistan faced the threat of the militant Islamic State (IS) group from Afghan soil.

Reacting to the premier’s remarks, Karzai described the statements as “an attempt to sow discord among Afghans, and an insult to the Afghan people”.

In a statement on his Twitter, he said the Pakistan government should “strictly refrain from propagating against Afghanistan and interfering in our internal affairs”.

“Pakistan should avoid speaking on behalf of Afghanistan [on] international forums. It should work towards creating positive and civilised relations between the two countries,” Karzai wrote.
