Iran once again called for the creation of an inclusive government in Afghanistan that involves all ethnic groups of the country.
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran, in a meeting with Fuad Hussein, minister of Foreign affairs of Iraq, said that Tehran will recognize the caretaker government when all the ethnic groups of Afghanistan have a share in the new government.
“We also consider the recognition of the interim government of Afghanistan conditional on the formation of an inclusive government in this country,” said Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran.
Meanwhile, in Kabul, the Development and Justice Party does not consider the current Afghan government to be inclusive. The leader of the party calls on the Islamic Emirate to establish a government in Afghanistan based on the share of all ethnic groups in the country.
“We ask the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan to respond positively to the legitimate demands of the international community,” said Sayed Javad Hosseini, leader of the Development and Justice Party.
Hosseini continues to criticize what he considers to be human rights violations and a violation of the amnesty decree by the Islamic Emirate.
“We want a general amnesty for all Afghan citizens to be strictly implemented,” said Sayed Javad Hosseini, leader of the Development and Justice Party.
However, Bilal Karimi, the deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, reiterates that the current government is inclusive.
“Over eighty percent of the employees of the previous government are performing their duties, which include individuals from all over the country, and at the leadership level to the political level where the changes have taken place and the cabinet has been formed, there are figures of all ethnicities of the country,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.
Currently, political representation from around ten countries are active in Afghanistan, but almost eight months have passed since the takeover of the Islamic Emirate and no country has formally recognized the government.
