Afghan Taliban Denies Media Claims that it's Meeting with United Nations

Below is a statement from the Afghan Taliban, which refers to itself as the "Islamic Emirate [state] of Afghanistan" (as it did in the 1990s). The statement is run without edits. An example of Taliban artwork from my research archive has been added..

Statement of the Leadership Council Regarding rumors of Meeting between UN Special Envoy and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan

January 29, 2010

The Leadership Council of the Islamic Emirate, on the basis of its previous legitimate stance, refutes the rumors in some media reports, about negotiation between representatives of the Islamic Emirate and, UN Special Envoy, Kei Ide.

The Leadership Council considers this mere futile and baseless rumors, being a machination against Jihad and Mujahideen who are waging Jihad against the invaders. The Leadership Council once again emphasizes continuation of Islamic Jihad against all invaders as a mean to frustrate these conspiracies.

In fact, the decisive stance of the Islamic Emirate regarding the London Conference, was a crushing blow dealt at the American and other invaders. Now the enemy wants to launch such propaganda campaign in order to compensate for that. But the Leadership Council and the sacrificing Mujahideen, with the help of the Almighty Allah, will defeat the futile efforts, conspiracies and collusions of the enemies of Jihad and they will face infamy, if Allah willing.
