Taliban Marks 100 Days Of Power, Still Seeking International Recognition For Islamic Emirates

Islamic Emirate officials flew to various regional countries-and further-to seek engagement and to build relations with foreign governments

Mumbai: Taliban on Tuesday marked 100 days of being in power in Afghanistan, yet struggling to establish international recognition for the Islamic Emirates.

Despite the repeated diplomatic efforts by Amir Khan Muttaqi to achieve international recognition for Afghanistan’s new government, which is led by Mawlawi Hebatullah Akhundzada, the Islamic Emirate supreme leader, the group is still seeking international recognition, reported Tolo News.

Islamic Emirate officials flew to various regional countries-and further-to sought engagement and to build relations with foreign governments. In return, representatives of at least six countries visited Afghanistan and held talks with officials.

During the first 100 days, six significant regional and international meetings were held in Afghanistan. Iran, Pakistan, India, Russia, China hosted meetings on Afghanistan, and G20 leaders and as well as the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) discussed Afghanistan’s issues in separate sessions.

However, in these meetings, the recognition of the Islamic Emirate government was not discussed, reported Tolo News. The meetings mainly stressed topics such as an inclusive government, human rights, freedom of expression, the right to education and employment for Afghan women and girls, and Afghanistan’s soil not being used as a platform for insurgency/terrorism, reported Tolo News.

“The diplomatic and foreign policy of the Islamic Emirate was limited to some neighbouring and regional countries during the hundred days, Countries are waiting to see whether the Taliban will fulfil whatever they committed to earlier or not,” said Fakhruddin Qarizada, a former adviser to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Meanwhile, it was reported by Tolo News that eleven countries, including Iran, Pakistan, China, Russia, Turkey, Qatar, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Italy and the United Arab Emirates, have opened embassies in Afghanistan.

After the US Military left Afghanistan, the Taliban took over the reins of the Afghan government in mid-August after a multi-decade war. However, they repeatedly assured that the formation of an inclusive administration will be better than their previous period in power from 1996-2001.
