After the reaction of the head of the Afghanistan Food and Drug Authority's trip to Germany and his speech among Afghan immigrants in this country, the Islamic Emirate said that Abdul Bari Omar went to the Netherlands based on an official invitation.
The Islamic Emirate told TOLOnews that Abdul Bari Omar was invited to the Netherlands on an official visit.
The spokesman of the Islamic Emirate emphasized that this trip was not illegal and Omar was able to travel to Germany and several other European countries with a Dutch visa.
"The fact that some issues have been raised by the protest parties in Germany is related to the country and its people, but the travel was legal, the professor was also legal, and there was nothing that could be considered a violation," Zabihullah Mujahid said.
However, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany on X expressed its lack of news about the visit and speech of this official of the Islamic Emirate in the city of Cologne, and condemned the visit of the head of AFDA and said that this country will not normalize relations with the Taliban until they respect human rights, especially the rights of women and girls.
The German Foreign Office wrote on X: “We strongly condemn the appearance of Taliban representative Abdul Bari Omar in Cologne. No visa was issued by one of our visa offices for the personal data we have. We are examining further measures in close cooperation with the internal authorities and partners.
The trip was not announced to us. We do not recognize the Taliban. As long as the Taliban in Afghanistan blatantly trample on human rights, especially the rights of women and girls, there will be no normalization with the Taliban regime.”
Analysts considered why this trip and the speech of this official of the Islamic Emirate have met with reactions among the Afghan immigrants in Germany.
"In order to free themselves from some pressure, they make such a statement. How is it possible for someone to enter a European country like Germany, which has strong intelligence?" said Hassan Haqyar, political analyst.
"They did not clarify this issue because they have a semi-official relationship with the current government and he was invited officially,” said Hewad Zazai, political analyst.
The head of AFDA was invited to the Netherlands on the (6th November) in an official trip to participate in the 2nd World Local Production Forum, and after that he has also traveled to Belgium, Slovakia and Germany.
