The acting Minister of Foreign Affairs, Amir Khan Muttaqi, said he is optimistic about Islamic Emirate relations with the international community, saying that Kabul’s ties with the world is strengthening and some countries are expected to reopen their embassies in Kabul.
“We have good relations with all the world and our relations are getting better. We hope to have good achievements in the future too,” he said.
The acting foreign minister said that the Islamic Emirate seeks good relations with all world countries.
“Our relations are official with the world. Although no one announced our recognition, that is another issue. But our embassies are opened in many countries and many countries have their embassies opened in Kabul,” Muttaqi said.
Analysts said that countries would open relations with Kabul based on their own interest.
“In order for Afghanistan to be connected with the world and start official activities, the international community and world powers demanded that the Taliban establish a legitimate government and the procedures of governing and that the future government of Afghanistan be clear,” said Javid Sandel, an international relations’ analyst.
“The regional countries want to have a consultative, trade and even intelligence presence in Afghanistan but this doesn’t mean recognition,” said Torek Farhadi, a political analyst.
This comes as the Islamic Emirate has so far not been recognized by any country.
