At the turn of the solar year, no country has officially recognized the interim government of the Islamic Emirate, however, its diplomats have been sent to some consulates and embassies of regional countries.
The Afghanistan consulate in Istanbul and the Afghan embassy in Tehran were handed over to the Islamic Emirate.
"The leadership of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs decided to send a team of seven experienced diplomats to the Afghan embassy in Tehran to not disrupt the delivery of services to our compatriots living in Iran," said Zai Ahmad Takal, then deputy of the Foreign Ministry.
The EU, India, UAE, Russia, China, Pakistan and other nations have maintained their diplomatic presence in Kabul.
However, Saudi Arabia has pulled out its diplomats and relocated them to Pakistan.
“I am happy with those countries who have not closed their diplomatic missions in Kabul and which are active. I call on other countries to reopen their embassies in Kabul,” said Amir Khan Muttaqi, acting Minister of Foreign Affairs.
“The important point that has to be made is that we reach a major political understanding,” said Sangar Amirzada, a political expert.
Officials of many foreign officials, including the UN, visited Kabul to discuss their concerns with the interim government.
On Haut 3 1401, (February 22, 2023), a senior Pakistan delegation led by the country’s Defense Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif arrived in Kabul and met with the First Deputy Prime Minister, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar.
The delegation included the head of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Nadeem Ahmed Anjum, Pakistan special envoy for Afghanistan Mohammed Sadeq, and Pakistan ambassador to Afghanistan Abdulruhman Nizami.
“Security issues and also issues that happen sometimes on the line between the two countries that cause problems and reduce trade were discussed," said the Islamic Emirate’s spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid.
On 26th Jadi 1401 (January 2023), the United Nations deputy chief Amina Mohammed arrived in Kabul and her visit was followed by the UN aid chief Martin Griffiths.
Amin Mohammed tried to meet with the leader of the Islamic Emirate, Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada, but the meeting did not happen.
The UN Security Council’s members last week adopted two resolutions on Afghanistan. The first was the renewal of the UN Assistant Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA).
The second resolution requested that the Secretary-General conduct an independent assessment that provides recommendations for an integrated and coherent approach among different actors in the international community in order to address the current challenges facing Afghanistan.
"The United States fully supports UNAMA, and its mission and we are proud to support a one-year extension of UNAMA’s mandate," said the US ambassador to the UN, Robert Wood.
