A spokesman for the prime minister’s office said on Thursday that the United Nations Deputy Secretary General, Amina Mohammed, who met with officials in Kabul this week, said they seek Afghanistan’s active role in the international community.
Mullah Hassan Akhund’s spokesman, Qari Mohammad Yousuf Ahmadi, said the UN top official assured of the continuation of aid to Afghanistan.
“She added that we want Afghanistan to become an active member of the international community in addition to the aid they provide. The future of Afghanistan is linked to the education of its new generation,” Ahmadi said.
The UN deputy chief Amina Mohammed has said that Afghanistan’s future is linked with the education of women and girls in the country.
The second deputy of the Prime Minister, Mullah Abdul Salam Hanafi, criticized the UN for not giving the seat to the ambassador of the Islamic Emirate and not removing it from the blacklist.
Amina Mohammed met with several officials of the Islamic Emirate, discussing women’s access to work and education.
Abdul Mutalib Haqqani, a spokesman for the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation, said that Amina Mohammed called for a review of the recent decree of the Islamic Emirate’s leadership.
“The Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation ensured them that the Islamic Emirate is not against the work and education of women,” he said.
Analysts said that the trip of Amina Mohammed is essential for the improvement of relations between Afghanistan and the world.
“Every delegation that comes to Afghanistan has its own agenda. But Afghanistan needs to continue engagement and its isolation must end,” said Najibullah Jami, a political analyst.
Amina also met with former Afghan president Hamid Karzai, former chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation, Abdullah Abdullah, and Amir Khan Muttaqi, the foreign minister of the caretaker government.
