In response to remarks of US Department spokesperson Ned Price, Islamic Emirate said it has implemented all commitments based on the Doha agreement.
Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the Islamic Emirate-led government, said the government is committed to ensuring the rights all citizens including women and minorities, according to Sharia.
“We want good relations with all countries, but we do not allow anyone who will dictate to us on the formations and structure of government,” said Karimi.
Ned Price, US Department spokesperson, on July 21 said that the US expects the Taliban to uphold commitments they have made to the international community and the Afghan people.
In a press briefing, Price further said there is no compromise when it comes to the commitments that the Islamic Emirate has put forward in private and in public.
“These are, in some ways, very simple commitments respecting the basic rights of people of Afghanistan – its women and girls, its minorities, its religious minorities – respecting the right of free passage for those who seek to leave, upholding its counterterrorism commitments, including in the context of al-Qaida, including in the context of the ISIS branch in Afghanistan, forging a government that is representative of the Afghan people,” said Ned Price.
Respecting human rights and freedom of speech, an inclusive government, counterterrorism and keeping Afghanistan’s soil from being used against the US and its partners were highlighted points of the Doha Agreement signed in Qatar.
On Friday, Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, in a series of tweets said that the Islamic Emirate has implemented all the commitments of the Doha Agreement and it will not allow anyone to use Afghanistan's soil against America and its allies.
