Haroon Chakhansuri, the president’s spokesperson dismissed recent claims of Mullah Omar having been hiding in Afghanistan until his death.
Chakhansuri wrote on Twitter “We strongly reject this delusional claim and we see it as an effort to create and build an identity for Taliban an their foreign backers. We have sufficient evidence which shoes he lived and died in Pakistan. Period!”.
The dismissal comes after journalist Bette Dam published a report claiming that Taliban founder Mullah Mohammad Omar lived the last phase of his life, until death, in southern Afghanistan.
