India Should Remain Impartial: Taliban

India should remain impartial in the current situation in Afghanistan and not side with a “foreign installed” government in Kabul, says Suhail Shaheen, Taliban spokesman. He was quoted as telling an Indian TV channel that the Taliban were being looked at with hostility, a view which will not serve them in the long run. He said the Taliban appreciates Pakistan hosting thousands of Afghan refugees for decades, but his movement acts independently of Islamabad.
