Taliban won’t allow Daesh to resurge in Afghanistan: FM Qureshi


MULTAN: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that the Afghan Taliban would not allow the Daesh militants to penetrate into their country,  Addressing a press conference at Multan’s Raza Hall on Saturday, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the Afghan forces had the capacity to combat Daesh in Afghanistan. He maintained that peace in Afghanistan was necessary for regional stability and Pakistan was consulting other countries in the region to ensure the development, prosperity, and uplifting of the war-torn country. The foreign minister said that he had briefed the Chinese authorities over the Dasu terrorist incident — which claimed the lives of 13 people, including nine Chinese nationals — and both countries have agreed on making joint efforts to foil sabotage missions against the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which is the project of regional development. He was asked if the Taliban take over Afghanistan and warlords continue insurgency, then what would be the future of CPEC. The FM said some people were conspiring against the CPEC, and the Dasu terrorism incident against Chinese engineers was part of that conspiracy. However, he claimed that no group could harm the CPEC projects.
