National Security Council (NSC) has reacted to the recent remarks made by the US Special Envoy for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad.

Khalilzad at a news briefing in Washington on Friday said that the assessment is that the attacks that took place against the hospital and the attack in Nangarhar on a funeral procession was the work of IS-K not the Taliban group.

The spokesman of NSC, Jawid Faisal in a press conference on Saturday said that there is no difference between the Taliban and IS-K that each are fighting against the Afghan people.

“The Afghanistan expectation from its allies is to not acquit the murderes of people. They are all terrorist and there is no difference between Taliban or any other groups.”

Faisal declared that Khalilzad should share any documents or evidence to the government that claims IS-K was responsible for the attack on Kabul materiality hospital.

NSC spokesman added that the Taliban insurgents have killed 79 civilians and 218 others in 21 provinces during the last week.
