The Taliban urged Iran and Pakistan to show restraint following exchanges of aggression along their border.

The conflict stemmed from Iran and Pakistan engaging in strikes within each other’s territories to combat ethnic Baloch separatist groups.

The Taliban, now in control of Afghanistan, called for diplomatic resolution and regional stability.

The Taliban’s “foreign ministry” spokesman Abdul Qahar Balkhi noted that the area was experiencing “newfound peace and stability” and “both sides should direct efforts towards further strengthening regional stability and resolving disputes through diplomatic channels and dialogue.”

“We respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Pakistan and Iraq, but we do not allow our national security to be compromised, and we have no compunction about [dealing with] terrorist parties inside Pakistan and Israeli movements in the Kurdistan region of Iraq,” Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said.

“What we did was aimed at boosting the security of Iran, Pakistan, Iraq, and the region. We consider the security of Iraq and Pakistan to be that of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he said.

Iran and Pakistan’s actions have raised international concern, particularly in the context of Iran’s increased terrorist activities and its nuclear ambitions.

The diplomatic relationship between the Taliban and both Iran and Pakistan remains strained due to various disputes and actions taken by the respective countries.

“Pakistan strongly condemns the unprovoked violation of its airspace by Iran and the strike inside Pakistani territory which resulted in the death of two innocent children while injuring three girls,” the Pakistani government stated. “This violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty is completely unacceptable and can have serious consequences.”

“The precision strikes were carried out using killer drones, rockets, loitering munitions and stand-off weapons. Maximum care was taken to avoid collateral damage,” the Pakistani military stated.

“The behavior of Pakistan towards Afghan refugees is unacceptable,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said. “The Pakistani side should reconsider its plan. Afghan refugees are not involved in Pakistan’s security problems. As long as they leave Pakistan voluntarily, that country should tolerate them.”
