Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said on Wednesday the group has not issued any press statement about the ongoing clashes between India and Pakistan.

Mujahid told Reuters that "the statement circulating about their comments on India, Pakistan clashes was fake".

"We have not said that India, Pakistan clashes will affect the Afghan peace process. The press statement shared on social media and with news companies is fake," he said.
