Exclusive: US backs Taliban, designing plots in region, says former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, World News



In an explosive statement, the former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the United States is supporting the Taliban in Afghanistan and designing new plots in the region with the insurgent group.

“It certainly is,” he said. Editor-in-chief of WION Palki Sharma in an interview, when asked if the Americans support the Taliban. “In fact, the Taliban are part of the American plot.”

“I believe that the Americans have not, in practice, left the region. And in fact, they have new plots, which are being devised, and they support the Taliban. “

In the near future, he said, the Taliban will use the slogan of ‘Great Khorasan‘and cause wars and conflicts throughout the region.

Part of the interview will air at 03:30 GMT on Tuesday.

Great Khorasan designates the region which includes the current territories of north-eastern Iran, parts of Afghanistan and southern Central Asia.

“If the United States and others do not support the Taliban, providing weapons and logistics, financial promotion and the like, then the Taliban could not endanger the security of Afghanistan“Ahmadinejad said.

“If the Americans and others go and stay outside, the problems would be resolved faster. “

The current security situation in this war-torn country is “both to the detriment of the Afghan nation and regional nations,” he said.

Anyone who is ready to help should do so to ensure that the will of the Afghan nation is implemented, said the former mayor of Tehran. “This will happen when the real representatives of the Afghan nation make the decisions. “

“Agreements between groups do not bring peace. What brings peace, tranquility and security is the application of the public will of the Afghan nation and its neighboring countries. “

He said outside powers should not interfere in the affairs of Afghanistan, but should help uphold the will of the Afghan people.

None of the neighbors of Afghanistan — Iran, Pakistan, India, China— or countries in the Persian Gulf, NATO and Russia- should mind the country’s affairs, he added.

Asked if speak with Taliban, and legitimizing the insurgent group, was a good idea, he said: “The Afghans should elect their representatives. And none of these groups represent the Afghan people.

This is only possible in a free election. If a group takes up arms, attacks and occupies parts of it, it cannot see itself as representatives of the nation and have rights, he said.

“If we accept this logic, then we will accept that the whole world is always unstable and that whoever is the most violent is dominant. Then rights and laws would be meaningless.
