The Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, in a joint press conference with Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, the emir of Qatar, said that neighboring countries of Afghanistan should help the people and political groups in the country to form an inclusive government.
Raisi met Al-Thani on Monday in Doha ahead of the global gas forum. Raisi said that otherwise insecurity might return to Afghanistan.
“Afghanistan's neighbors and countries in the region must help the people and all ethnic and political groups of Afghanistan to establish an all-inclusive popular government in Afghanistan, otherwise insecurity will return to this oppressed country,” Raisi said as quoted in the presidential website of Iran.
Raisi also criticized the 20-year presence of US troops in Afghanistan. "After several decades of aggressive and occupying presence of the domination-seeking forces, the region is returning to the hands of regional nations.”
Meanwhile, a number of political analysts said Raisi’s remarks on the inclusive government in Afghanistan is ‘interfering’ in the internal affairs of Afghanistan.
“This is the internal affair of Afghanistan and the Afghan people will not allow others to start campaigns for their puppets,” said Abdul Haq Hemad, a political analyst,” Abdulhaq Hemad, a political analyst said.
After the return of the Islamic Emirate to power, the international community including Afghanistan’s neighbors have been calling for the formation of an inclusive government in the country.
The Islamic Emirate, however, has repeatedly said that the current caretaker government is comprised of people from different ethnicities already, and it is trying to make it more inclusive.
