Taliban find crucial documents from UK embassy
KABUL: Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from Afghanistan has been completed, but crucial documents have fallen into the hands of the Taliban.
According to a foreign news agency, the UK also closed its social media account as soon as the withdrawal from Afghanistan was completed. Important files left during the evacuation of the British embassy fell into the hands of the Taliban.
The Taliban confiscated sensitive documents of Afghans working for Britain. The documents contain contact numbers, home addresses and other information about Afghans.
The documents were left behind by the British embassy in Kabul during the evacuation, and these sensitive documents will make it easier to identify Afghans.
Documents from Afghans were scattered on the floor of the British embassy. Afghans had applied for jobs at the British embassy.
On August 23, Minister for Interior Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad had said Afghan Taliban had assured that they would not allow anyone to use Afghan soil against Pakistan.
“The Afghan Taliban have also assured the government that the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) would not be given permission to operate in Afghanistan against Pakistan,” the interior minister had said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad.
He had said few TTP members such as Maulvi Faqir Mohammad had been released in Afghanistan, adding that the government of Pakistan was in contact with Afghan authorities on the matter and have been informed that these terrorists were involved in terrorism in Pakistan.
Sheikh Rasheed had said the region has become significantly important due to changing situation in Afghanistan. He had added that long-lasting peace in Afghanistan was important for the region as well as for the world.
