NCRI Staff

NCRI - Officials of Afghanistan opposed the presence of Afghan militants to fight under the command of the terrorist Quds Force in Fatemiyun division and Hashed al-Sha’bi in Syria and Iraq.

Abdullah Abdullah, executive director of Afghanistan’s National Unity Government, said on Monday, November 27, at a meeting of the Council of Ministers in Kabul, “The Afghan government's policy of fighting Daesh (ISIS) is clear. We do not support the presence and participation of Afghans in the war in any country.”

Also, Hossein Mortazavi, the administrator of the Afghan presidential spokesman, said: “We are opposed to any proxy war in other countries. The blood of Afghanistan’s children is being shed for defending the territorial integrity of our country. There should be no blood of any Afghan citizen shed to serve the interests of others.

These stances were expressed after Mohammad Mohaqiq, the second deputy head of Afghanistan's executive branch last week praised the presence of the so-called Fatemiyun in the Iraqi and Syrian wars during a statement at the so-called Lovers of Ahl-Bayt gathering in Tehran.

Following this, a handful of Afghan MPs and officials protested Mohaqiq, calling his statement disturbing and irresponsible.
