WEB DESK: After the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, the issue of handing over the security of Kabul Airport to Turkey is becoming a matter of controversy.
There has been a strong reaction from the Afghan Taliban, with the latest statement suggesting that if Turkey does not reverse its decision, the conflict between the Taliban and Turkey could escalate.
The Afghan Taliban has opposed the deployment of Turkish troops to secure Kabul airport, saying that the announcement made by the Turkish rulers at the request of the United States would harm bilateral relations.
The spokesman for the Afghan Taliban said that the announcement of the deployment of Turkish troops by the Turkish rulers was a frivolous decision and a step against our nation, national sovereignty and regional security.

The spokesman urged Turkish authorities to reverse the decision. The spokesman said that the presence of foreign forces in any country and in any name is aggression, such foreign forces will be treated as usurpers on the basis of the fatwa of the scholars.
The spokesman for the Afghan Taliban added that “we do not interfere in anyone’s affairs and do not allow interference in our own affairs. If the Turkish authorities do not reconsider, the Islamic Emirate and the Afghan nation will stand firm against it.”
It should be noted that according to Afghan media reports, Turkey and the United States have agreed on the scope of security at Kabul Airport. Afghan Civil Aviation says that a new defense system has been activated at Hamid Karzai Airport in Kabul.
US decides to transfer Afghan interpreters
On the other hand, the United States has decided to transfer Afghan interpreters from Afghanistan.
According to the foreign news agency, in view of the Taliban’s advance, it has been decided to transfer the Afghan interpreters and their families from Afghanistan.
The United States has said thousands of US and NATO-backed spokesmen will be transferred to the United States or another country.
The White House spokesman said that the Afghan spokespersons were brave and they supported the Americans despite the dangers. We must recognize and appreciate their role. According to sources, about 2,500 people will be evacuated, whose visa process has already begun.
The special immigrant visa program is available to those who sided with the US government or the US military in the 2001 Afghan war.
It should be noted that US President Joe Biden has set a deadline of September 11 for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, but 80% of US troops have already left Afghanistan, while the Taliban’s advance in Afghanistan continues at a rapid pace. The Taliban have established control over 90% of the country.
The Taliban received 3 billion Pakistani rupees from posts snatched from Afghan forces
On the other hand, the Taliban got 3 billion Pakistani rupees from the check posts snatched from the Afghan security forces on the Pak-Afghan border.
A statement issued by the Afghan Taliban said that about Rs. 3 billion in Pakistani currency was recovered from the check posts of the Afghan forces in the Spin Boldak area of Kandahar, which was evacuated by the Afghan security forces.
Analysts say this is the amount that Afghan security forces received as bribes from smugglers. According to analysts, the Afghan intelligence agency NDS used the money to pay terrorists to carry out attacks in Pakistan.
Analysts also say that Afghan agencies are active as a sub-franchise of Indian and other anti-Pakistan elements.
