The Islamic Emirate welcomed visits of foreign ministers of Islamic countries to Afghanistan, which Turkey proposed as a way to discuss the situation in the country.
The deputy minister of information and culture, Zabiullah Mujahid, called the visit important, saying that the summit of the Islamic countries’ top diplomats in Kabul will pave the ground for resolving the current political challenges.
“In total it is a better step, and we praise it and we will welcome them (diplomats),” he added. “And this can kind of resolve the political problems that we have with foreign countries.”
The Turkish foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said that the top diplomats of the Islamic countries would be visiting Afghanistan in the near future. He made the remarks at a joint news conference with his Indonesian counterpart, Retno Marsudi.
According to Cavusoglu, the visit aims to provide necessary measures for humanitarian support in Afghanistan.
The issue was discussed with the envoys of some Islamic countries on the sidelines of the UN assembly, he said.
The delegation of the Islamic Emirate, led by acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi, visited Istanbul on Thursday to hold meetings with the country’s officials.
According to Mujahid, the delegation would also discuss the upcoming summit of the Islamic countries in Kabul.
“For some Islamic countries there are a lot of questions, for example, some decisions have been taken regarding the power, such as the caretaker government's term limit. What will be the share for others? And the closure of girl schools, for how long?" said Tariq Farhadi, a political analyst.
A political expert, Mohammad Sabir Sadeqqi, said, “It is good news for the Islamic Emirate, so it can be recognized at the international level in the near future.”
The Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Qatar, Abdul Rahman Al-Thani, said that “as long as there is a country called Afghanistan and there are Afghan people we need to deal with the situation despite the government which is in power, we need to find a way forward, not to abandon them.”
Earlier, Moscow expressed readiness to host a high-level meeting regarding Afghanistan on October 20.
