The Taliban supreme leader, Hibatullah Akhundzada, in his message on the arrival of the Eid-ul-Adha said that this year people are celebrating the Eid in such a way that Afghanistan has been completely freed, and the entire nation is living in peace and brotherhood.
“This victory is not only belonging to the Islamic Emirate and the Mujhideen, rather it belongs to the entire Afghan nation that during the past 20-year of Jihad, they suffered all kinds of hardships till our country was freed of invasion,”Akhundzada said. “I call on all directions that we do not want enmity with anyone, our arms are open to our countrymen. Our friendship and enmity are based on the principles of Islam.”
He added that Taliban are trying for ensuring the security, development and construction, despite strengthening the Islamic system.
“We assure our neighbors, the region and the world that we will not allow anyone to use our territory to threaten the security of other countries. We also want other countries not to interfere in our internal affairs,” Akhundzada reiterated.

“Within the framework of mutual interaction and commitment, we want good, diplomatic, economic and political relations with the world, including the United States, and we consider this in the interest of all sides,” supreme leader of Taliban said.
