Muttaqi Urges World to Engage with Afghanistan

Acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi urged the international community to engage with Afghanistan, saying that pressure on Afghanistan would not resolve the current challenges in the country.  

He expressed optimism that the current Afghan government would soon be recognized. 

Talking at the Institute of Strategic Studies Islamabad on Friday, Muttaqi said that the Islamic Emirate was committed to the general amnesty.  

“Any reform that the world wants and is in the interest of the Afghans should be through cooperation, not pressure,” he said.  

Abdul Qahar Balkhi, a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, said that Pakistan's prime minister Imran Khan agreed to allow the transit of wheat donated by India to the people of Afghanistan.  

“Imran Khan pledged that Afghan transit via Pakistan would be facilitated, India-provided wheat will be allowed to reach Afghanistan via Wagah port, as well as visa services will be facilitated,” Balkhi said.  

He once again criticized the suspension of international aid to Afghanistan and the freezing of Afghan bank assets.  

“This is a positive visit as Afghanistan is gripped with a severe humanitarian crisis. We hope this draws the support of the international community,” said Hamid Aziz Mujadidi, a university instructor.
