Afghanistan rejects Pak denial on its Air Force providing cover to Taliban

Former Vice President Amrullah Saleh

New Delhi,(Asian independent) Afghanistan’s First Vice President Amrullah Saleh has rejected Pakistans denial on its Air Force threatening the Afghan military and providing support to the Taliban.

“On Pakistani denial: For over 20 years Pakistan denied the existence of Quetta Shura or presence of Talib terrorist leaders in its soil. Those familiar with this pattern, Afghan or foreign, know exactly that issuing a statement of denial is just a pre-written paragraph”, Saleh said in a tweet on Friday.

Saleh said he has shared the evidence to relevant outlets.

Saleh had said in an earlier tweet that Pakistan Air Force has issued official warning to the Afghan Army and Air Force that any move to dislodge the Taliban from Spin Boldak area will be faced and repelled by the Pakistan Air Force.

The Pakistan Air Force is now providing close air support to Taliban in certain areas, he said.

“If anyone doubts my tweet on Pak Air Force & Pak Army warning to d Afg side not to retake Spin Boldak I am ready to share evidence through DM. Afghan aircrafts as far as 10 kilometers frm Spin Boldak R warned 2 back off or face air to air missiles. Afg is too big to be swallowed,” Saleh further tweeted.

Saleh has said that Taliban are puppets of Rawalindi’s GHQ.

“Can Taliban convince a single Afg including themselves that they aren’t puppets of Rawalpindi’s GHQ ? They are just a kill & destruction squad in the hands of Pak which badly needs a victory to overcome the crisis of identity & self confidence. Watch Pak media to verify this.”
