Saying that the policy of the Islamic emirate is very clear about not interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, the Taliban on Monday denied claims circulated on social media that it could join Pakistan-sponsored terrorism in Kashmir.

Suhail Shaheen, the spokesperson the Taliban political office based in Doha, Qatar tweeted that “The statement that has been circulated in certain media regarding India does not belong to Islamic emirate.”

He said that the “policy of Islamic emirate regarding neighbour states is very obvious that we don’t interfere in the domestic issue of other countries”. His remarks come after tweets attributed to some Taliban spokespersons claimed that friendship between the group and India is impossible unless the Kashmir issue is resolved.
