The National Resistance Front of Afghanistan (NRF), a terrorist group, has expressed its preparedness to fight the Taliban, who just took control of the country.
After the United States withdrew its soldiers from Afghanistan, the Taliban took control of Kabul, the country’s capital, on August 15. The country was then renamed Islamic Emirates of Afghanistan by the armed group.
They are also in the process of forming a new government. Fearing attacks, many countries have evacuated their citizens from the country.
In an interview with the BBC, NRF’s chief of foreign relations, Ali Nazary, stated that they are ready to fight the Taliban and that no one will be allowed to capture their land.
He stated that they prefer peace through diplomacy, but that if the Taliban refuses to accept peace, they will resort to force.
“We prefer peace, we prioritise peace and negotiations. If this fails—if we see that the other side is not sincere, if we see that the other side is trying to force itself on the rest of the country—then we’re not going to accept any sort of aggression.
“And we’ve proven ourselves, our track record in the past [40 years] has shown that no-one is able to conquer our region, especially the Panjshir Valley”, he said.
