The Islamic Emirate’s Spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid called on Turkey to engage in "deep" relations with Islamic Emirate and recognize its government.
Mujahid made the remarks in an interview with a Turkish TV channel.
The Islamic Emirate’s spokesman also urged the US to lift sanctions on Afghanistan.
“We want to have deep diplomatic relations with Turkey and other countries, so If God wills, the Islamic Emirate will be recognized through this and there will be further cooperation both in the diplomatic and economic sector,” Mujahid said.
Analysts believe that the Islamic Emirate must take tremendous steps to earn the recognition of the international community.
“The issue of lifting some restrictions on women’s work and travelling is important. The ensuring of some political and civil rights of the people is important and then, in general, the formation of an inclusive government is important,” said Shir Hassan Hassan, a political analyst.
“Turkey is an Islamic country and it is located both in Asia and Europe, and can play an important political and economic role as a liaison between the Islamic Emirate and the international community," said Ahmad Khan Andar, a political analyst.
Speaking of women’s access to education, the Islamic Emirate’s spokesman said that efforts are underway to facilitate girls’ education under an Islamic format.
"The Islamic Emirate is paying all-out efforts to provide a safe and protected environment under the Islamic format for women in education field and work,” Mujahid said.
Zabiullah Mujahid has left Kabul for Ankara to participate in the gathering of the Union of Scholars and Madrasas (İttihad'ul Ulema).
