Kabul, September 01 : Declaring that Taliban want to work for betterment of entire Afghanistan, Anas Haqqani, one of the top Taliban leaders in Afghanistan, Wednesday called upon global media to shun negative reporting against Afghanistan’s new regime and give it a chance to take the country forward.
Anas Haqqani in an exclusive interview with CNN-News18 channel said, “We struggled for twenty years. Lots of negative propaganda about us and it’s all wrong. The Haqqani Network is nothing. We are working for everyone. The media worldwide and especially in India is spreading negative propaganda about us. This is spoiling the atmosphere. No Pakistani weapon was ever used in the war. These allegations are wrong and baseless.”
When asked what sort of relationship Taliban wants to have with Indian government, he said, “We want a good relationship with India. We don’t want anyone to think wrong about us. India has helped our enemy for twenty years but we are ready to forget everything and take the relationship forward.”
