Representatives of the radical Taliban movement stated that they intend to pardon their opponents and issued a corresponding act.

The representative of the movement, Zabiullah Mujahid, promised to ensure the freedom of the media and the safe operation of embassies in the country.

“The Taliban movement does not want to settle scores with its rivals, an act of general pardon has been issued,” the speaker of the movement said.

He noted that the Taliban guarantees the safety of all those who worked with the United States and its allies and will think about continuing their work in the country.

“We will respect the freedom of the press because the information will be useful for society and at the same time can help correct the mistakes of leaders,” Mujahid said in a statement sent to Reporters Without Borders.

He also stressed that the work of embassies, missions, and international organizations would be completely safe.

At the same time, the statement of the representative of the Taliban on media freedom was questioned by Reporters Without Borders since the seizure of power in the republic causes panic both in the capital Kabul and in the rest of the country. Mujahid also said that Afghanistan would stop producing drugs under the rule of the Taliban.
