In an exclusive interview with India Today, Jamal, who is the head of international relations and regional cooperation (IRRC) at the Office of the National Security Council of Afghanistan, spoke about his work. "Without Pakistan's governmental assistance, the Taliban would not be as powerful. Pakistan assists foreign fighters from Lashkar, Jaish, and Haqqani in into the country. They plan how they might assist the Taliban "he stated. "The Afghan authorities are organising for the early repatriation of Danish Siddiqui's lifeless remains to India," Jamal added, referring to the death of Pulitzer-winning photojournalist Danish Siddiqui.
