A number of western media outlets have published reports alleging that the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate received payments from Russia for killing American troops and other such rumors.
We strongly reject this allegation. The nineteen-year Jihad of the Islamic Emirate is not indebted to the beneficence of any intelligence organ or foreign country and neither is the Islamic Emirate in need of anyone in specifying objectives.
The Islamic Emirate has made use of weapons, facilities and tools in its nineteen-year Jihad that were already present in Afghanistan or are war spoils frequently seized from the opposition in battles.
The American forces suffered most of their losses from simple plastic bottles that were filled by the Afghans in their own homes with their own homemade explosives.
These rumors are being circulated to create hurdles for the departure of American troops, to weaken and confuse advocates of peace in America and to attribute the great heroism and achievements of the Afghans to foreigner circles.
We reassure our nation and the entire world that the Islamic Emirate is not a tool of anyone nor is it employed for foreign agendas rather it has sacrificed to protect its religion, land and greater interests and has accomplished everything with its own hands and initiative.
Such rumors can never change the stance of the Islamic Emirate. We believe that implementation of the agreement signed with the United States of America will ensure the goal of achieving comprehensive peace and we remain committed to it in the future just as we have completely acted upon it so far.
