Taliban Finally Showing Its True Colors

Written By BlabberBuzz | Wednesday, 25 August 2021 14:30

The Taliban has forbidden all Afghan citizens from trying to escape the country from Kabul airport effective immediately and directed women to stay at home after again suggesting Western forces leave by the August 31 deadline.

Zabihullah Mujahid, the Islamists' chief spokesman, said in a press conference today the group will "not accept" any addition to the deadline, and from now on only stranded strangers will be ready to reach the airport in the next week to leave Nato and Western planes. He said: "The road to Kabul airport is closed for locals and open to foreigners.

"We fully assure the locals and tell them to return to their homes. We are not in favour of allowing Afghans to leave."

He added that women have been told to stay at home for their own safety, saying: "It's currently for their benefit to prevent any ill treatment."

Mujahid also declined to dismiss the Taliban held a secret meeting with the CIA after reports appeared that the Islamists met with the agency's director in Kabul yesterday.

He said he is "not aware" of the meeting but did not deny that it had taken place.

CIA director William Burns is thought to have met with the Taliban's de-facto leader Abdul Ghani Baradar in Kabul to address - among other things - the August 31 deadline to remove foreign forces from the country.

Speaking about foreign citizens in Afghanistan, Mujahid repeated the deadline put by Joe Biden which other world leaders are concerned is too soon to make the evacuations.

He said: "All people should be removed prior to that date. If [western countries] wish to remove people before then, they can.

"[But] after that we will not allow people to leave, we will take a different stance."

He spoke a day after another Taliban spokesman - Suhail Shaheen - warned of "consequences" if western soldiers overstay their welcome.

Joe Biden had been under increasing demand from other world leaders to continue the deadline, with France, the UK, Spain and Germany all warning that it does not give them long enough to remove all those they agreed to give sanctuary to.

Speaking in Kabul today, Mujahid forced thousands of people trying to flee the country via Kabul airport to "go home" - adding: "We guarantee your safety".

Mujahid said America and other western governments should stop evacuation flights immediately and accused them of taking the "educated elite" out of Afghanistan which he said will hurt the rebuilding effort.

"Unfortunately the Americans are still... taking Afghan people out of the country to an uncertain future," he said.
