Afghanistan: Saudi Arabia sends message to Taliban



The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has urged the Taliban, who seized Afghanistan’s capital Kabul, to preserve lives, property and security as stipulated by “Islamic principles.”

The kingdom said on Monday it stands with the choices that the Afghan people make without interference.

A takeover of the entire Afghanistan was all but certain on Sunday as the government collapsed and the Taliban swept away territories.

Based on Islamic principles, Saudi Arabia hopes that the Taliban and all Afghan parties will work to preserve security, stability, lives and property, Saudi’s foreign ministry said in a statement.

The Islamic country said it is confident that the situation in the Central Asian State will stabilise as soon as possible.

Saudi Gazette reported that the Gulf country is carefully following the current events.
