Afghan Government Not Concerned with Taleban Radio


The Afghan government says it is not concerned about the recently launched clandestine Taleban radio station that is broadcasting anti-U.S. and anti-government propaganda.

A presidential spokesman says since the Afghan people suffered enough under the ousted Taleban regime, the propaganda is not expected to have an impact.

He also said he does not believe the Taleban remnants can continue such activities for long because the government intends to bring them to justice sooner rather than later.

A U.S. military spokeswoman in Kabul says it is up to the Afghan government how it wants to deal with the broadcasts. But she said the area targeted by the broadcasts will definitely be under U.S. military surveillance.
