Masoud aired his voice clip from an unidentified place, hours after Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said there were unconfirmed reports that Amrullah Saleh had fled Panjshir.
There were reports about the escape of Massoud and Saleh to Tajikistan.
Mujahid, speaking at a press conference, said that Panjshir province had been fully captured and added that those who had fled could still join the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
Masoud in his voice clip though did not say anything about the capture of Panjshir province directly, adding that their forces are present in the province and Andarab.
"National resistance force is for entire Afghanistan. We welcomed the call for a ceasefire by religious scholars in Kabul but the Taliban did not agree and launched attacks on the forces," Massoud said.
He claimed that the Taliban's last night's attacks were backed by foreign forces and added that a new spokesperson of the resistance forces would be announced soon.
The spokesperson of the resistance forces, Fahmi Dashti, has been killed but the Taliban said that he was killed in a conflict between the resistance forces. IANS
