Times Square News(Karachi): Taliban spokesman and Afghanistan's Deputy Information Minister Zabihullah Mujahid have reacted to Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan's offer to send manpower to Afghanistan.

In an interview with BBC Pashto Service, Zabihullah Mujahid thanked Pakistan for its offer of manpower and said that Afghanistan has a large number of skilled and educated people so we do not need external manpower.

He said that they can apply from foreign countries if needed but Afghanistan is self-sufficient in terms of educated youth.

Zabihullah Mujahid said that many countries have made suggestions to Afghanistan regarding manpower but we will accept cooperation in economic, trade, and financial fields.

He said that there were some banking problems in the country which needed help.

It may be recalled that the Apex Committee on Afghanistan chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan had recently vowed that Pakistan would not leave the Afghan people alone in this hour of need.

The Prime Minister said that Pakistan is committed to providing all possible assistance to the Afghan people and trained and trained manpower should be sent to Afghanistan to avert the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.

He said that expert manpower in medical, IT, finance, and accounting is needed to avert the humanitarian crisis.
