New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan's Zabīhullah Mujāhid: "Remarks Regarding Baseless Claims of US Officials"

In the later hours of Friday, US officials declared to a number of news agencies including Reuters that a letter was sent last year to the White House by the Commander of the Faithful, Mullah Muhammad Omar Mujahid in which a number of subjects were touched upon including peace and prisoner exchange.
Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan rejects this baseless rumor with the strongest of words and considers it as part of the chain to create anxiety and distrust. The decisions made by Islamic Emirate are not founded on imploring or entreating anyone but are based on pure faith, divine support and the backing of its courageous nation. All praise is due to Allah, we have adamantly proved in the past decade that we shall never bow our heads to the enemy but will counter every one of its actions. American officials, instead of making up such baseless lies should acknowledge the ground realities and accept the transcendence and firmness of this nation in every period. Wishful claims will not cure the current ailments of America but it must foremost remove its presence from our soil in order to save its people from the heavy wounds of war. Hoping for surrender from the Afghan people is an unrealistic wish and a goal which could not be achieved by America in the past ten years despite employing its state of the art weaponry and satanic stratagems. Such irresponsible claims by Americans and the media outlets associated to them will not serve any purpose except put into spotlight the turbulence inside the White House and amongst its officials. The esteemed Commander of the Faithful, Mullah Muhammad Omar Mujahid is very well known by the Afghans and the rest of the world; his determination and will have also been thoroughly tested in the past decade so tying such rumors to him cannot mean anything other then blatantly exposing oneself and an attempt to please a few American officials.
