TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Taliban intelligence chief in Afghanistan's northern Kunduz province rejected reports of the local presence of militants affiliated with the Daesh terrorist group as baseless and fabricated.


"Lasting peace has returned to Kunduz province and people are living in peace there and any report about the presence of Daesh militants in Kunduz is utterly baseless," Hajji Najibullah Haron told reporters on Wednesday, Xinhua reported.

Afghanistan will not allow anyone to sabotage peace and security in Kunduz or any other parts of the country, the official added.

After taking over the capital Kabul on Aug. 15, the Taliban announced the formation of a caretaker government on Sept. 7.
