UN Secretary General António Guterres at a press conference on Monday stressed the need for the inclusion of all ethnic groups in the power structures in Afghanistan and said it is important that all ethnic groups are represented.
Guterres also emphasized the need to ensure human rights in Afghanistan, in particular women and girls' rights, the right of women to work, the right of girls to attend school at all levels "without discrimination."
“Well, there are several clear things that we believe the Taliban must deliver from the point of view of the interests of the international community and from the point of view of the interests of Afghanistan itself,” he said.
This comes as Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian stressed the need for the formation of an inclusive government in Afghanistan, saying that it would pave the ground for enduring security and stability in the country.
“We believe that the path to enduring security and stability in Afghanistan is through the demands and decision of the people of the country with the formation of an inclusive government,” Abdollahian told the Iran Discussion Forum.
The Islamic Emirate has once again insisted that its government is inclusive and that efforts are underway to remove problems.
“The government and its formation is inclusive. Officials of the Islamic Emirate are making efforts so that we don’t have any problem in any field,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.
Analysts said that there hasn’t been significant progress when it comes to ensuring inclusivity in the formation of the government.
“They want the people of Afghanistan from all ethnic groups to be represented. Therefore, I think there has been less progress in this respect,” said Moeen Gul Samkani, a political analyst.
The international community has put the formation of an inclusive government, ensuring of human rights, particularly women’s girls, and preventing Afghan soil from being used by terrorist groups as the preconditions for the recognition of the government of the Islamic Emirate.
