Afghan leader announces to launch resistance against Taliban
KABUL: Ahmed Masood, son of the late Afghan leader Ahmad Shah Masood, has declared resistance against the Taliban.
Ahmed Masood wrote in an article in the Washington Post that members of the Afghan army and some members of the Special Forces unit were also with him.
Ahmed Masood said he also had weapons and ammunition which he had accumulated in his father’s time because they knew that such a time might come.
“Besides, the troops that have joined us have also brought weapons and ammunition with them. If the Taliban invade our valley, they will face strong resistance from us,” he added.
It should be noted that Ahmad Masood, son of late Ahmad Shah Masood, is currently present in his area of Panjshir Valley which has not been captured by the Taliban yet.
On the flip side, Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhry had on August 17 said the federal government would not rule alone on recognizing the Taliban government.
While briefing the media in Islamabad after the federal cabinet meeting, Fawad Chaudhry had said the government was consulting with regional countries on the issue of Afghanistan. “We are also in touch with friendly countries as well as different groups in Afghanistan on the Afghan issue,” he had said.
