The deputy PM for economic affairs, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, in a meeting with Iran's ambassador to Kabul, Hassan Kazemi Qomi, said that Afghanistan does not interfere in other countries’ internal affairs and that they expect the same from them.
According to the deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, Bilal Karimi, the deputy PM, said that Iran and other neighbors of Afghanistan should take fundamental steps to strengthen relations with the Islamic Emirate and not allow others to have the opportunity to damage these relations.
“Mullah Baradar in the meeting told the Iranian side that Afghanistan does not interfere in other countries’ internal affairs and also doesn't allow others to interfere in our internal affairs. Mullah Baradar said that a union and centric government has been created in Afghanistan after decades of wars and it wants good economic and political relations with the countries, particularly neighboring countries,” he said.
Meanwhile Baradar’s office said on X platform that in the meeting, Hassan Kazemi Qomi said that Tehran is interested in cooperation in the economic, agricultural, industrial, and railway transportation areas with Kabul.
“The regional and neighboring countries should take the first step to recognize Afghanistan (Islamic Emirate) because Afghanistan is in the heart of Asia. If this country is not recognized, others will also face problems,” said Rozi Mohammad Zabuli, a political analyst.
“The diplomatic relations between the countries are aimed at resolving issues through diplomatic paths,” said Mooen Gul Samkani, a political analyst.
It has been over two years since the Islamic Emirate came to power, but no country has so far recognized it.
