QuestionHow many embassies does India have in Afghanistan?
answer : Well officially there are a total of 4 embassies, you will know how many are unofficial.
Talking further on this question, Qureshi said, “India’s presence in Afghanistan is excessive”, if seen, the border of Afghanistan and India does not meet each other, and obviously India has strong national relations with Afghanistan. And there is a bilateral relationship between the two countries, and it is your right, there is also trade between the two countries, which is not a problem for us.
Question: India’s presence in Afghanistan bothers you?
answer: If the land of Afghanistan is used against Pakistan, then it is a matter of trouble.
Qureshi got upset over the question on Taliban leader’s presence in Pakistan
In a question by Tolo News chief Lotfullah, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood was seen deteriorating on the mention of Taliban leader Haibatullah and said that Taliban wants peace in Afghanistan.
Question: Are Taliban leaders Haibatullah and Sirajuddin Haqqani not in Pakistan?
answer: You are making allegations, by the way, you ask your government itself.
Questioning this further, Lotfullah said that the Taliban leader, Sheikh Abdul Hakim, had come to Afghanistan last month to talk to its leaders, and he had officially said that he was from Pakistan;
Responding to which Shah Mahmood said, I did not discuss it with him, and I do not have any information about it, although the Taliban also wants peace in Afghanistan. On this, Lotfullah interrupted Shah Mahmood and said that how do you know that the Taliban wants peace in the country, in response to which Qureshi said that we have been talking to them.
Minister Shah Mehmood defends Taliban
Pakistan’s Foreign Minister appeared to be defending the violence in Afghanistan, Shah Mahmood said, if you are again trying to create the impression that the Taliban is causing violence in the country, then it is to exaggerate, I I am saying this because apart from Taliban there are many other organizations which are playing the role of worsening the situation, forces like ISIS are present inside your country. And we are not giving shelter to Talibani leaders and if seen, many of their leaders are present in Afghanistan.
Question asked on Durand Line..!
In the interview, Lotfullah also asked questions on Durand Line. The Durand Line is the name of the border that divides Pakistan and Afghanistan into separate borders. Which was questioned by Shah Mahmud about making the international border.
Question: Should the Durand Line be considered an international border?
answer: If you want to give together and have the spirit to develop together and move forward, then definitely the Durand line should be accepted as an international border.
Question: Will you talk to the government of Afghanistan about this?
answer : However, there is no need for any discussion on this, and I believe that the Durand Line is an international border.
