Some media outlets published a report two days earlier asserting that 3 border guards from neighboring country of Turkmenistan were killed in the border region by unknown gunmen that apparently crossed over from our country. Regretfully some officials of the stooge Kabul regime in Badghis province blamed the incident on the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate to achieve their malicious objective.
The Islamic Emirate strongly condemns this harmful incident and categorically rejects its involvement in such detrimental and irresponsible actions while it also extends its condolences to Turkmenistan and the family members of the said police officers.
It must be mentioned that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan wants cordial relations in the framework of mutual respect with its neighboring and regional countries as well as the international community. It does not interfere with the affairs of others and neither does it accept interference by others in its own affairs. The Islamic Emirate had good relations with its neighboring countries during the time of its rule and is still committed to the principles of good neighborly relations and mutual respect.
We must say that Turkmenistan has respected the principles of good neighborly relations with our beloved homeland in the past and has not interfered with the affairs of our country. We respect and encourage this sound policy of the said neighboring country and hope for its continuation in the future.
