High-profile officials of the Islamic Emirate attended a gathering on Tuesday to discuss the issues surrounding the signing of the Doha Agreement as well as other current affairs.
The deputies of the PM, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar and Abdul Salam Hanafi, acting minister of Mines and Petroleum, Shahabuddin Delawar, and Shaikh Khaled Hanafi, acting minister of Virtue and Vice, took part at the gathering.
The key topics of the gathering were the Doha Agreement, education and the role of professional Afghan staff in the future of Afghanistan.
Shahabuddin Delawar, acting minister of Mines and Petroleum, told the participants that the signing of the agreement signaled the failure of the United States in Afghanistan.
“The failure of America, the occupier, started when the US envoy signed the agreement with Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar. They signed their failure,” said Shahabuddin Delawar.
Abdul Salam Hanafi, deputy of the Islamic emirate’s Prime Minister, said the US is refusing to fulfill its commitments within the Doha Agreement. “One of the articles of the agreement was that all senior members of the Islamic Emirate be removed from the blacklist, but they have not fulfilled it yet,” said Abdul Salam Hanafi.
At the gathering, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar urged all professional cadres to take part in rebuilding Afghanistan by staying inside the country.
“I call on the professional staff to not leave Afghanistan and stay and build Afghanistan. You will be honored and respected here and you (Afghans) can assist your compatriots,” said Abdul Ghani Baradar.
“We will reach self-sufficiency when engineers, doctors and economic specialists serve their own country and people, not strangers,” said Shaikh Khaled Hanafi.
