The acting Minister of Interior, Sirajuddin Haqqani, said that the Islamic Emirate wants “good relations with the US and the international community.”
Haqqani in an interview with CNN said that “there is no one” who “opposes education for women” in Afghanistan.
He said that soon good news will be heard about the education of girls and that a mechanism is being developed in this regard.
“We all believe that education has been created as a blessing from God, which has been made essential to both men and women. As I mentioned earlier, there is no one who is opposed to education,” he said. “The problem is education based on the Afghan way of thinking and understanding, the culture aspect of Afghanistan. there is an issue of making arrangements of Islamic rules and principles.”
While asked if he still considers the US the "enemy," the acting Interior Minister, who is also the deputy leader of the Islamic Emirate, said they do not “look at them (US) as enemies” and are committed to the Doha agreement, and want relations with the US based on principles and diplomatic norms.
“I would like to make a small clarification. The period of the last 20 years was a situation of defensive fighting and war. When the agreement was made in Doha, we decided that we would not be talking about this. In the future we would like to have good relations with the United States and the international community,” he said.
Haqqani once again reiterated his assurance that the Afghan soil will not be threatened by anyone.
