Taliban leader asks businessmen to invest in Afghanistan

The minister asked doctors in the country to serve the patients so that no Afghan would need to seek medical treatment abroad in the future.

In his first appearance before the media in Kabul on Wednesday, Taliban Defence Minister, Mullah Mohammad Yaqoob, urged businessmen to invest in Afghanistan’s health sector.

Mr Yaqoob is the son of the late Mullah Omar, the founder and first supreme leader of the Taliban who ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001.

Speaking at an event at the Sardar Mohammad Daoud Khan military hospital in Kabul, Mr Yaqoob said that the decades of war were over in the country.

He called on businessmen to invest in Afghanistan and asked doctors in the country to serve the patients so that no Afghan would have need to seek medical treatment abroad in the future.

Following the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in August, the Taliban military leader urged his fighters not to harm members of the collapsed Afghan military and government, but to keep off their homes and properties.

In the meantime, Mr Yaqoob has noted that the Taliban have been criticised for fighting Afghans and labeled them as proxy forces of countries.

According to him, there cannot be a fight against the “invaders” without eliminating the Afghan security forces who were on the front lines in the U.S. war on terror.

“We couldn’t reach the U.S. base. We couldn’t carry out our jihad against the invaders without eliminating them,” he stated.
