Terrorist group the Taliban has made claims that it signed a ​$450m deal with Australian company Cpharm, which wants to set up a cannabis processing center in Afghanistan.

According to the Taliban Press Director Qari Saeed Khosty, the contract had been signed, and the project “will be up and running within days.”

But the Australian company denied that it made any deals with the Taliban, Reuters reported.

A representative of the company reportedly met with Afghanistan’s deputy narcotics minister.

In the meeting, he reportedly pledged a $450 million investment for the project, Pajhwok news agency reported.

Cpharm did not respond to Al Arabiya English’s request for comment but later denied the claims.

Khosty said that the company would have access to thousands of acres of Afghan cannabis crops.

The news comes after the Taliban vowed to crack down on cannabis production in the country earlier this year.

Yussef Wafa, a Taliban governor of Kandahar, said the group had been arresting drug users and banned farmers from growing cannabis or opium poppies.

But farmers said there was no real change in the group’s attitudes towards them.

Cannabis and opium crops were known to be lucrative sources of revenue for the Taliban when it operated as an insurgency under the US-led occupation of Afghanistan.

Earlier this year, the National Security Council (NSC) Spokesperson Emily Horne said the White House was eternally grateful to the Taliban terrorist group for being “businesslike and professional.”

Horne said:

“The Taliban have been cooperative in facilitating the departure of American citizens and lawful permanent residents on charter flights from HKIA."

"They have shown flexibility, and they have been businesslike and professional in our dealings with them in this effort."

"We will continue these efforts to facilitate the safe and orderly travel of American citizens, lawful permanent residents, and Afghans who worked for us and wish to leave Afghanistan,” Horne continued.

“Because there is an ongoing terrorist threat to operations of this nature, we will not be sharing details of these efforts before people are safely out of the country.”
