Group desires to work with other countries to restore peace, security in Afghanistan, says Zabihullah Mujahid.

A Taliban spokesman said Wednesday that the group has asked Muslim countries for support for a political solution that will end the war in Afghanistan and that it wants to maintain good relations with Turkey.

Zabihullah Mujahid argued that the solution to the current problem in Afghanistan is an "inclusive" Islamic government and said the group wants to work with other countries to restore peace and security and start a rebuilding process.

"We want good relations with Turkey, Turkey is our brother, we have many points in common based on faith. We want Turkey to leave the past and return to the present and the future. After that, we can ask for dialogue," Mujahid told TRT Arabi, the Arabic broadcasting service of Turkey's public broadcaster, TRT, during an interview that touched on the withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan, the operation of Kabul Airport and peace negotiations between Afghan parties in Doha.

On an Afghan peace conference that is expected to be held in Istanbul, he said the Taliban evaluated every opportunity to bring peace to Afghanistan and the region.

The much-anticipated peace conference was scheduled for the end of April but was postponed.

He noted that ensuring the security of the Kabul airport, diplomatic missions and embassies is the responsibility of Afghans and the Taliban will consider any other move as an intervention in the country's internal affairs.

Mujahid added that the Taliban welcomed the resumption of dialogue between Kabul and the group in Qatar and they hope that negotiations will yield good results.

The latest round of intra-Afghan negotiations failed to deliver a breakthrough, with the Afghan government and the Taliban on Sunday vowing via a joint statement to continue and expedite high-level peace talks in Doha, Qatar.

The situation in Afghanistan has gained importance in recent weeks after US President Joe Biden announced that all American forces will withdraw from the war-torn country by Sept. 11, with NATO allies to follow suit.

Intense fighting between Afghan forces and the Taliban continues amid the withdrawal of foreign troops.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that Turkey is considering operating the major Kabul airport and Ankara is ready to discuss the peace process with the Taliban.

Talks between the US and Turkey about security at the airport following the US pullout remain ongoing. Erdogan and US President Joe Biden discussed the issue at a recent NATO leaders' summit in Brussels.

Ankara has been running the military and logistic operations at the Kabul airport for six years as part of the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission.

Turkey, whose forces in Afghanistan have always been noncombatants, has reportedly offered to guard the airport amid questions about how security will be assured along major transport routes and at the airport, which is the main gateway to the capital.

pretty hard to believe that the Taliban, that have beaten the living snot out of the only super power in the world would "obey" the Pakistani ISI or any other intelligence organization for that matter. Yes, Pakistan's ISI and the Taliban have close, cordial relations but that is a far cry from being the "face" of the ISI.

Regardless, Taliban fully understand Turkey's predicament as a reluctant partner due to being a member of nato. Taliban knows that Erdogan is just playing this nato game until 2023 when Turkey finally gives nato & its ol' perverted uncle sam that great Ottoman bitch slap that throws them back into yesterday!

It doesn't matter where it is from either you are for it or against. I called you a Jew too , I am not surprised that you didn't take offence to be called that.

There is never an endless treatise.
The treaty’s objective was to establish Turkish borders not much else, the treaty served its purpose. Even if it expired what would Turkey do? Nothing

It will have legitimate right to undo any wrongdoings it suffered historically. If something was stolen from you in the past and you are in a position to reclaim it, wouldn't you?

that 100 treaty Turkey signed with the west in 1923 to not assert sovereignty over energy rich waters & bosphorous straits expires.
@Hakikat ve Hikmet can elaborate more.
Now, Bosporus straits is covered by the Montraux treaty, which restricts Turkey from collecting tolls and passage of the third party warships into the Black Sea.

As for the Treaty of Lausanne, the most important part is the legitimacy of the republican regime, which abolished the Saltanat and Khilafat, which enabled them to introduce reforms that fundamentally changed the Turkish government, society, mindset etc.

The Turkish sides also lost vital islands in the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. Also they lost Mosul, Kirkuk, Aleppo, Batum etc.

As for the alleged “secret points”, it’s all speculative…

The Treaty of Loussane basically imprisoned Turkey within 800K km2! Now, they’re trying to break that shackle….
