Islamic Emirate Calls on UNSC to Lift Travel Ban on Leaders

The Islamic Emirate called on the United Nations’ Security Council to lift the travel ban on its senior officials.

A spokesman for the Islamic Emirate suggested that lifting sanctions on the officials of the Islamic Emirate will benefit “all sides” and will pave the way for engagement.

Spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said that the imposition of pressure and restrictions by the international community will not bring a solution to the problems.

“To build trust, to fulfil the promises that we have committed to each other, the banned list should be eliminated and free travel should be allowed. This benefits all sides to have good (relations) with Afghanistan and to bring trust and be cooperative in economic and diplomatic aspects,” said Zabiullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.

The political analysts said that the continued ban on some officials of the caretaker government are due Islamic Emirate ignorance of the international community’s wishes.

“As long as there is more travel of the senior Islamic Emirate’s officials, the more possible it will be for the Islamic Emirate’s leadership to have engagements, and this is effective for both sides,” said Janat Fahim Chakari, a political analyst.

“If there are travel bans, the leaders of the Islamic Emirate cannot engage in negotiations with the international community and whenever there is no travel or negotiations, how can the problems that exist be resolved?” said Mohammad Hasan Haqyar, a political analyst.

The travel ban exemptions for thirteen caretaker government officials, including the first deputy prime minister, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, second deputy prime minister, Mullah Abdul Salam Hanafi, political deputy of the prime minister, Mawlawi Abdul Kabir and acting foreign minister, Amir Khan Muttaqi, have not yet been extended.
