Taliban to be recognized by world soon: Mujahid

Written by The Frontier Post

KABUL (Khaama Press): Deputy Minister of information and culture and the spokesperson of the Taliban Zabiullah Mujahid has recently said that the world will soon recognize the Taliban.

The deputy minister has said that representatives of a number of countries have visited Afghanistan and they (the Taliban) have also sent a letter to the UN Secretary-General for recognition.

Mujahid said that this is their right to be recognized and added that the leaders of the Taliban are busy talking with the UN.

It has been more nearly 45 days since the Taliban took over entire Afghanistan but they are not yet recognized by any country.

Respecting human and women’s rights, forging an inclusive government, and not allowing Afghanistan to be safe haven for terrorism and extremism are the conditions put by the international community for recognizing the Taliban.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has promised to be implementing all these, but none of them seems to be implemented yet.

On the other hand, the US has frozen nearly ten billion dollars of Afghanistan’s assets in its banks which can lead to an economic and humanitarian crisis if not unfrozen.

Current National IDs, passports valid, will change in future: Taliban:

Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has said that the national identity cards and the passports that are issued by the previous Afghan government are valid for the time being.

Deputy Minister of information and culture and the spokesperson of the Taliban Zabiullah Mujahid said that the documents issued by the previous government, are still valid as legal documents of the country.

Zabiullah Mujahid has said that it is possible for the Afghan passports and NIDs to have the name “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan” in them.

The passport and NID departments are still closed in Afghanistan and only those who have conducted their biometrics can get their passports and NIDs.
