Haji Obaidullah Sader Khail, head of the Afghan business council in the UAE, said that he met with the US special representative for Afghanistan, Thomas West and “spoke about the Afghan business community and Afghan people’s problems.”
Sader Khail said that the two sides agreed they should work together to solve the problems Afghans are facing.
“We talked about these issues and assured him that we will work on it to find a solution for them so that the problems ahead of the Afghan traders can be solved and continue their business,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Islamic Emirate’s spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said that US officials should not neglect the realities in Afghanistan at their meetings.
“The visits that Thomas West began were different from his other visits. I meant it should be beneficial and bring a proper and clear result for Afghanistan and also for the US,” Mujahid said.
This comes as the acting head of the Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Investment (ACCI) said that the challenges ahead of the traders inside Afghanistan should also be addressed.
“The international community should help in construction, industry and economic fields of Afghanistan,” said Mohammad Younsu Momand, acting head of the ACCI.
Earlier, US special envoy for Afghanistan Thomas West said on Twitter that he met in Dubai with Presidential Advisor Anwar Gargash to discuss shared interests in Afghanistan.
“Appreciate the principled leadership UAE has shown in prioritizing the rights of Afghan women and girls in its engagement. Look forward to continued UAE-US collaboration in support of Afghan people,” he said.
