Taliban has warned India of coming to Afghanistan “militarily” saying it “will not be good” for New Delhi while citing the “fate of military presence of other countries” in the war-torn country.

“If they (India) come to Afghanistan militarily & have their presence, I think that will not be good for them. They’ve seen the fate of military presence in Afghanistan of other countries, so it is an open book for them,” news agency ANI quoted Taliban’s Qatar-based spokesperson Muhammed Suhail Shaheen as saying.

Shaheen, however, hailed India’s help to Afghan people by carrying out some development projects.

“They (India) have been helping the Afghan people or national projects. They did it in the past. I think that is something which is appreciated,” he said.

India says it has invested more than USD 2 billion in Afghanistan for capacity building which includes schools, roads, dams, etc.

New Delhi, like many countries, recently evacuated staff from consulates located in provinces that fell under the Taliban which is making rapid advances and nearing Kabul.

However, the spokesperson said that the group will not target any embassy or diplomat.

“About assurance to diplomats and embassies, there is no danger from our side to them. We will not target any embassy, any diplomat that we have said in our statements, not once but many times. So it is our commitment that is being published is in media. On India’s concerns, I think it is up to them. About us, our position is clear we are not targeting any diplomat or embassy,” Shaheen said.
