The Iranian officials refused that the leader of Afghan Taliban Mullah Akhtar Mansour was entered from Iran at the time when he was targeted and killed in a U.S drone strike.
At the other hand, Pakistani security officials informed to AFP that Taliban Afghan leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour was killed on Saturday in a U.S drone strike in the southern Balochistan province. The Pakistani security officials confirmed that Mullah Akhtar Mansour was just entered from Iran at the time of drone attack, so there would be some hidden links of Taliban terrorists between Iran and Afghanistan. The U.S President Barak Obama confirmed on Monday that Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour has been killed in a U.S drone strike and said that his death is an important success for bringing peace in Afghanistan. Senior Taliban sources also confirmed to AFP about killing of Taliban leader and added that Taliban’s Shura is now looking to nominate the new Afghan Taliban leader.
The spokesman of Iranian foreign ministry Hussein Jaber Ansari told the IRNA news agency that Iran deny the presence of Taliban leader Akhtar Mansour in their country and he was not entered from Iran into Pakistani territory before drone attack. Senior Iranian security officials also denied that Akhtar Mansour crossed Iranian border and entered into Pakistan. But, Pakistani security officials declared that they have found documents from the body of Akhtar Mansour (Muhammad Wali). These documents are clearly showing that he left for Iran on 28th March 2016 and entered into Pakistan on the day of U.S drone attack. Iran had confirmed their support for Afghanistan in the fight against Taliban group, but Iran allegedly supporting the Taliban terrorist group using their secret hands. Islamabad confirmed that Pakistan hosts many of the Top Afghan Taliban leadership to exert influence over them and bring them back to peace talks with Kabul. Pakistan called the U.S drone attack a violation of its sovereignty.
