Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Pakistani foreign minister, expressed regret over the Islamic Emirate’s decision to deny Afghan girls access to secondary schools.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari in a recent interview with FRANCE 24, said that the Islamic Emirate has not fulfilled their promises to the international community, and this had precluded recognition of their government.
“It would help the government of Afghanistan gain legitimacy and perhaps a path to recognition if they were to live up to those expectations, one of which is female education. Now, our Afghan neighbors do say that as far as primary education is concerned they allow girls to go to primary schools...what we are waiting for is secondary education,” said Zardari.
In reaction to Zardari’s speeches, the Islamic Emirate said it has fulfilled all the conditions needed for official recognition.
“We have fulfilled all the conditions that are required, so these speeches are not true, where someone says we have not met the conditions,” said Zabihullah Mujahid, spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.
Meanwhile, political analysts believe some parts of the Doha agreement have been violated by the Islamic Emirate and the United States of America.
“Details of the agreement are violated by both sides, not one side, but there are some internal issues that the Taliban are seeking to address,” said Aziz Maarij, a former diplomat.
“The Islamic Emirate faces many problems, in the meantime, the world is making excuses,” said Ahmad Khan Andar, political analyst.
Forming an inclusive government, respecting human rights, especially the rights of women and girls, and not using Afghan soil against other countries are the main conditions of the international community for the recognition of Afghanistan.
