Anas Haqqani, a senior member of the Islamic Emirate, said that a process of "silent" or tacit recognition of the Islamic Emirate by the international community is underway, and there have been positive improvements in the political sector.
“This is the result of the political efforts--that Kabul is full of embassies today, and in many countries we have opened our own embassies, which is a silent process of recognition,” he said.
Addressing tribal leaders and local officials in a public meeting in Khost province, Mr. Haqqani said differences should not harm the country's national values and that security forces should abide by the amnesty decree of the Islamic Emirate leader.
“If any Taliban or government official puts pressure on you, this is not our policy, we can call it the personal coercion of that person. We can assure you that if anyone has a problem in their village or tribe, you can turn to the authorities,” said Anas Haqqani, a senior member of the Islamic Emirate.
In an informal meeting that was held between the tribes in Khost, the dowry of women in the province was also determined.
“In this meeting, the boy’s funds and the girl's needs have been considered,” said Mohammad Nabi Omari, the governor of Khost.
“Gala (an amount of money provided by the family of the bride to the family of the groom) is forbidden in Sharia, it may be called a dowry, which is the right of a girl; we must apply the principles of Sharia in this regard,” said Anas Haqqani, a senior member of the Islamic Emirate.
While the Islamic Emirate officials speak of progress in recognizing the government, no country in the world has so far recognized the ruling government, despite Kabul's insistence that it has met all the conditions for being officially recognized.
