An Afghan Taliban diplomat said on September 15, 2001 that Saudi-born militant Osama bin Laden, a prime suspect in the terror attacks on the United States, was free to leave Afghanistan but would not be forced out. 'If the man wanted to leave of his own will, we will not stop him. But if he wanted to stay in Afghanistan, we cannot make him leave,' the Taliban charge d'affaires in the United Arab Emirates, Aziz al-Rahman, told Abu Dhabi television.
