On the sidelines of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, Qatar's Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani told Doha News that Afghanistan's future is "concerning," because a clear plan is lacking.
He added that he is concerned about the increase in humanitarian and economic crisis and the activities of terrorist groups in Afghanistan.
For the current government authorities to advance Afghanistan, the international community must make a blueprint, he said.
“Actually until now there is no clarity on the way forward for Afghanistan. What we have been advising the international community is that we need to arrange a blueprint for the way forward. What are the required series of conditions that we need from the current leadership of Afghanistan, an exchange of what we can provide as an international community, but in the absence of a clear road map for the way forward, I think the situation in Afghanistan will remain concerning. We have seen a growing humanitarian crisis over there, an economic crisis, as well as a growing concern on a terrorist organization to be operational from there,” Qatar's foreign minister said.
Meanwhile, the US special envoy Rina Amiri tweeted she met with foreign ministers and officials from Pakistan, Qatar, Turkey and Uzbekistan at the UN General Assembly.
The formation of an inclusive government and the protection of women's rights to employment and education, according to her, are crucial to restore normality to ties between the international community and the Islamic Emirate.
"Agreed that inclusive governance & human rights, particularly, the rights of women & girls to education & work is key to normalized relations w/Taliban.” Amiri tweeted.
Analysts said that human rights institutions and Western governments are putting pressure on the Islamic Emirate to respect human rights in Afghanistan.
"Respecting human rights, the rights of women in accordance with the Islamic religion, and other values that a government has an obligation to carry out for its citizens and the world--if these actions are carried out, I think that the people will get closer to the Taliban and a national legitimacy will be found," said international relations specialist Javid Sangdil.
"Human rights organizations in the West are very active and constantly put pressure on their governments to adopt the global standards of human rights in Afghanistan,” said Ahmad Monib, political analyst.
The Islamic Emirate has previously criticized the international community's demands for an inclusive government, access to education, and employment opportunities for women, calling it interference in Afghanistan's internal affairs.
