Islamic Emirate urges Türkiye to recognize govt


The Islamic Emirate’s Spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid called on Türkiye to engage in “deep” relations with Islamic Emirate and recognize its government.

Mujahid made the remarks in an interview with a Turkish TV channel. The Islamic Emirate’s spokesman also urged the US to lift sanctions on Afghanistan.

“We want to have deep diplomatic relations with Türkiye and other countries, so If God wills, the Islamic Emirate will be recognized through this and there will be further cooperation both in the diplomatic and economic sector,” Mujahid said.

Analysts believe that the Islamic Emirate must take tremendous steps to earn the recognition of the international community.

“The issue of lifting some restrictions on women’s work and travelling is important. The ensuring of some political and civil rights of the people is important and then, in general, the formation of an inclusive government is important,” said Shir Hassan Hassan, a political analyst.

“Türkiye is an Islamic country and it is located both in Asia and Europe, and can play an important political and economic role as a liaison between the Islamic Emirate and the international community,” said Ahmad Khan Andar, a political analyst.

Speaking of women’s access to education, the Islamic Emirate’s spokesman said that efforts are underway to facilitate girls’ education under an Islamic format.

“The Islamic Emirate is paying all-out efforts to provide a safe and protected environment under the Islamic format for women in education field and work,” Mujahid said.

Zabiullah Mujahid has left Kabul for Ankara to participate in the gathering of the Union of Scholars and Madrasas (İttihad’ul Ulema).

Meanwhile, Islamic Emirate’s spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said that Washington has been preventing the international community from recognizing the caretaker government of Afghanistan. Mujahid made the remarks in an interview with TOLOnews’ Sebghat Sepehr.

“They have been defeated here and suffered a lot of human and financial loss and were politically damaged. In such a situation, they might not be ready to engage but there is a need for both sides. They would benefit from it and it is in the interest of Afghanistan and the region,” Mujahid said.

The Islamic Emirate’s spokesman said they want to have an official interaction with the international community.

“The policy of the Islamic Emirate with the world is to engage with all countries based on mutual respect and legal manners. This is our right and no one should look down at our independence and should not inflict damage on us. They may recognize us as an independent country and should engage officially within the world’s norms,” Mujahid said.

According to Mujahid, the world’s demand to create an inclusive government in Afghanistan is interfering with Afghanistan’s internal issues and the time for negotiations is over.

“Its time has passed. We were saying to solve the issue via negotiations before military actions and solve it via agreement, thus the situation would have been better now,” he said.

Mujahid said that the Resistance Front is not a serious threat for Islamic Emirite, and the group is just active on social media.
