He also delivered a message to the UK prime minister and the international community to “respect the aspiration of the people of Afghanistan”.

“This is their obligation because they were behind the destruction of Afghanistan during the 20 years,” he said.

“It is their moral obligation to also help to reconstruct Afghanistan and to help the people to start a new life, and a new chapter in Afghanistan.”

And he insisted that no “group or individual” will be allowed to “use the asylum of Afghanistan” to organize terrorist activities.
