with the United States. “It has now been confirmed that Ira­nian in­tel­li­gence agen­cies had passed on in­for­ma­tion to Amer­i­can spy agents that helped drone air­craft at­tack Mul­lah Akhtar Man­sour,” Hek­mat­yar said in a state­ment.

A US drone air­craft killed the Tal­iban leader in Balochis­tan over the week­end, a move which Pak­istan says has scut­tled ef­forts for the peace process.

Mul­lah Man­sour was fol­lowed by US in­tel­li­gence from Iran, says re­port “He (Man­sour) came un­der at­tack at such a dis­tance near the Ira­nian border when the spy air­craft reached there from Kan­da­har and Man­sour ar­rived at the site from Iran at the same time,” the HIA leader said.

“While we strongly con­demn the ter­ror­ist act dur­ing the peace talks, we con­sider it as a big and un­for­giv­able trea­son by Iran,” said Hek­mat­yar, who is close to strik­ing a peace deal with the Afghan gov­ern­ment.

He said Iran has al­ways “stabbed the Mus­lim Ummah in the back since its birth and has acted as in­im­i­cal to the in­ter­ests of the Is­lamic na­tions.” The Hizb leader fur­ther said that his or­gan­i­sa­tion wanted to fi­nalise an agree­ment with the Afghan gov­ern­ment through ne­go­ti­a­tions and should also make ef­forts to en­cour­age the Tal­iban to join the in­tra-Afghan di­a­logue.
