John Kirby, US National Security Council spokesman, said that Washington does not have a plan to recognize the current Afghan government.
Speaking at the press conference,Kirby noted that the al-Qaida threat is vastly diminished and unlikely to return in Afghanistan, and the US is keeping an eye on other terrorist networks.
“We have not recognized the Taliban. There are no plans to do that at this point. If they want to be seen as legitimate, then they need to legitimately meet the commitments they made to the international community about how they would govern, particularly when it comes to the treatment of women and girls. And they have not only not done that, they’ve gone the other way. So there’s no plans right now to recognize the Taliban. And as for any threat of terrorism, I think you saw the intelligence community make a statement a week or so ago that certainly the al-Qaida threat is vastly, vastly diminished and unlikely to return in Afghanistan. We’re keeping an eye, of course, on other terrorist networks that could use ungoverned spaces there and elsewhere,” John Kirby said.
Referring to the matter of recognition, Bilal Karimi, the Deputy Spokesman of the Islamic Emirate said that currently Afghanistan has official relations with many countries.
Karimi once again pledged that Afghanistan’s territory is not a threat to any country.
"Afghanistan holds a special and official position, and it has official relations and interactions with different world countries. The Islamic Emirate respects and supports the rights of all people inside the country,” Karimi said.
According to some political analysts, in order to solve issues in the way of interaction between the Islamic Emirate and the international community, a consultative Loya Jirga should be held.
"We hope that a consultative Loya Jirga will be held in which the representatives of all the organizations of the world will participate, so that we can find solutions for the problems that we have in the area of interacting with the world,” said Moin Gul Samkanai, a political analyst.
"We should accept the UN charter, rules and standards and proceed based on them, then the international community will pay special attention to the people of Afghanistan,” said Mohammad Salim Paigir, a political analyst.
Over two years have passed since the Islamic Emirate came to power, but so far, including neighboring countries, no nation has recognized it.
