The Taliban say failure to recognize their government could have global implications

NS Taliban Asked United State And other countries, this Saturday (30), which recognizes its government in AfghanistanHe stated that failure to do so and continuing to freeze Afghan funds abroad would lead to problems not only for the country, but for the world.

No country has officially recognized the Taliban government since the rebels took control of the country in August, and billions of dollars in Afghan assets and funds abroad have been frozen, even as the country faces serious economic and humanitarian crises.

“Our message to America is: If the non-recognition continues, then problems in Afghanistan will continue, and it is a problem for the region that can turn into a problem for the world,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told reporters in a newspaper. The conference is this Saturday.

He said the reason why the Taliban and the United States went to war last time was also that there were no formal diplomatic relations between the two sides.

American invasion

The United States invaded Afghanistan in 2001 after the September 11, 2001 attack after the Taliban government refused to extradite al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

“These issues that caused the war could have been resolved through negotiations, as they could have been resolved through political commitment,” Mujahid said.

He added that recognition is the right of the Afghan people.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with Taliban officials in Qatar earlier this week.

Mujahid said on Saturday that China had pledged to finance transportation infrastructure and give Kabul’s exports access to Chinese markets via neighboring Pakistan.

Mujahid also spoke about the problems facing the border crossings, especially with Pakistan, which has seen repeated closures and protests in recent days. The crossings are critical for landlocked Afghanistan.

He said that serious talks on the matter were held when the Pakistani foreign minister traveled to Kabul last week.
