In reaction to the Samarkand meeting, the Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said they welcome any meeting that benefits Afghanistan.
Samarkand, capital of Uzbekistan, is due to host the fourth meeting of regional countries on the situation of Afghanistan on April 13 and 14.
No delegation from the Islamic Emirate has been invited to this meeting.
Mujahid said no country should feel threatened by Afghanistan.
“They should be assured that Afghanistan is not a threat and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is responsibly pledging there will be no interference in any country’s internal affairs- nor will there be any threat from Afghan soil toward anyone,” Mujahid said.
The meeting in Uzbekistan is expected to feature the political, security, humanitarian and narcotics situation in Afghanistan.
The Russian Foreign Minister told a press conference that on the 13 and 14th of April, in addition to two other meetings, the meeting of Afghanistan's neighboring countries will be held—which is a vital event.
Political analysts said that if the meeting does not bring any practical results, it will not benefit Afghanistan.
“There is a common threat they are facing from Afghanistan. But its root goes back to Pakistan. These meetings now can be at the level of ideas and they want to create coordination,” said Wali Frozan, political analyst.
“As long as the meetings which are being held regarding Afghanistan do not include the presence of Afghanistan, they will not bring any results because the main issue is the engagement with Afghanistan and the future of the political relations of Afghanistan. Afghanistan’s presence is important in these meetings,” said Mohammad Zalmai Afghanyar, political analyst.
Many meetings have so far been held on the Afghan situation. However, the impact of the meetings on the situation in Afghanistan is unclear.
