The government of Uzbekistan is to host a conference on Afghanistan on July 25-26 in which delegations from more than 20 countries will participate, a statement of the country’s foreign ministry said.
“The main goal of the event is to develop a set of measures and proposals for the approaches of the world community to promote stability, security, post-conflict reconstruction in Afghanistan and its integration into regional cooperation processes in the interests of the multinational Afghan people and the whole world," the statement reads.
The analysts believe that the meeting will discuss the challenges happening in Afghanistan due to its being isolated from the international community.
“The attention of the world has been distracted from Afghanistan. The world is responsible to play an important role regarding Afghanistan in its economic field to prevent Afghanistan from being side-lined and the collapse of the political and economic systems,” said Wali Froozan, an economist.
“In the economic area, the humanitarian aid, transit, unfinished projects of Uzbekistan in Afghanistan, particularly the railway to Kabul and from Kabul to Peshawar, will be the main agendas of the conference,” said Nazak Meer Ziyarmal, an economist.
A delegation of the Islamic Emirate led by the acting Minister of Foreign Affairs, Amir Khan Muttaqi, will participate in the conference.
“Following an official invitation of Uzbekistan, a delegation led by Amir Khan Muttaqi and comprised of members of ministries and sectorial organizations will attend and the Islamic Emirate will express its needs and will also meet with several others on the side-lines of the conference,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.
Earlier, many such conferences were held on Afghanistan but no country has so far recognized the current Afghanistan government.
