Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid warned that if US troops did not withdraw from Afghanistan, "we would treat them differently."

Iran press/Asia: The official spokesman for the Afghan Taliban said in an exclusive interview with Al-Alam TV: "We call on ISIL to stop its behavior, which is considered a strange behavior in Afghanistan, otherwise they will be suppressed."

The Taliban said on Saturday they were preparing a new cabinet as the US evacuation nears its end and they expected that sharp currency falls and economic turmoil following their takeover of Kabul two weeks ago would subside.
