IEA says Afghanistan is not responsible for ‘security failure’ of Pakistan

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) has again rejected claims by Pakistan that Afghan nationals are involved in terror attacks across the border and stated that Afghanistan is not responsible for the “security failure of any country in the region.”

According to a statement issued late Tuesday night by the IEA’s spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid, the IEA “completely rejects these allegations and tells the Pakistani authorities that Afghanistan is a country that has come out of long wars and does not want insecurity in any other country, especially neighboring countries.

“The government of Afghanistan once again reiterates its principled position that it does not allow the territory of Afghanistan to be used against the security of any other country, but this does not mean that Afghanistan is responsible for the security failure of any country in the region.”

The IEA stated that the region has been a “victim of foreign invasion led by America and the wrong policies of some countries in the region” over the past 20 years, “the effects of which are still being felt.”

Pakistan should carefully manage its security situation and find a solution at home, the statement read.

The IEA stated that in the past year, 18 Pakistani Daesh members were killed in different operations in Afghanistan – militants who had carried out explosions and attacks in the country. Dozens more were captured, the statement read.

“Instead of pointing the finger of blame at the Pakistani side, the Afghan government has strengthened its security measures.
It is worth mentioning that if someone attacks in Pakistan or the blood of the Muslims of Afghanistan and Pakistan is shed in the name of Daesh, a solution should be found together, blaming is not the solution.”

The statement also noted that when conspiracies to attack religious scholars and seminaries in Afghanistan and in the region have been uncovered, IEA intelligence agencies have informed countries in the region of this in advance. “Unfortunately, some countries did not take timely measures.”

The IEA again emphasized it is not in favor of attacks being carried out in Pakistan, but that “the prevention and control of attacks inside the territory of Pakistan is not our responsibility; Rather, it is the duty of the security and intelligence agencies in that country, for which they spend a large part of their country’s budget. 

In the past two years, since an independent and responsible government has been established in Afghanistan, the security situation in Afghanistan and the region has improved significantly. The fact that security incidents have increased only in Pakistan, Pakistan needs to find a solution in its own country.”

Sri Lanka captain suspended by ICC for abusing umpire during Afghanistan match

Sri Lanka captain Wanindu Hasaranga has been suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) over abusing an on-field umpire during the third T20I against Afghanistan in Dambulla earlier this week.

Hasaranga has been slapped with a two-match suspension after his total demerit points reached five within the last 24-month period following his latest breach of the ICC Code of Conduct, for which he received a 50 per cent fine and three demerit points.

On Wednesday, Hasaranga approached umpire Lyndon Hanibal to express criticism regarding a decision of a high full toss not called a no-ball.

Sri Lanka required 11 runs off the final three balls when the incident occurred. With Momand’s delivery called legal and Mendis making no contact with the full toss, the equation became 11 off 2. Sri Lanka eventually lost the match by three runs.

The suspension means Hasaranga will miss Sri Lanka’s first two T20Is against Bangladesh next month.

Afghanistan player Rahmanullah Gurbaz has also been penalised. He has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee for breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct in the same match.

Rahmanullah was found in violation of article 2.4 of the Code, which pertains to “Disobeying an Umpire’s instruction during an International Match.”

Furthermore, one demerit point has been added to Rahmanullah’s disciplinary record, marking his second offence within a 24-month period and bringing his total demerit points to two.

The sanction was imposed on Rahmanullah for altering the grip of his bat on the field despite repeated warnings against doing so.
