The acting Interior Minister, Sirajuddin Haqqani, in a meeting with a delegation of scholars from Islamic countries, discussed a range of topics including security, economic stability and construction in the country.
During the meeting, Haqqani said that the power in Afghanistan is now in the hands of religious scholars and they understand the interests and priorities of the country.
The acting Interior Minister also mentioned the fight of the Islamic Emirate against the production, cultivation and smuggling of drugs and the treatment of drug addicts.
“The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has had good achievements in the past two years in the area of fighting against narcotics, the treatment of addicts, the fight against corruption, ensuring security all over the country, and also stability and economic growth,” said Abdul Mateen Qani, the spokesman of the ministry.
According to some political analysts, the visit of the delegation of Islamic countries with the officials of the Islamic Emirate can be effective in solving some the challenges of the country.
“It is the responsibility of the Islamic countries, and the international community, to pay attention to Afghanistan and persuade the current government to pay attention to these remarks. I think the visit of these scholars is effective,” Khalil Ahmad Nadim, a political analyst, told TOLOnews.
“Their visit [scholars] with the Taliban officials, I think will not have a tangible change in the behavior of the Taliban,” Sayed Javad Sajadi, a political analyst, told TOLOnews.
Earlier, the delegation of scholars from Islamic countries, in a meeting with the acting foreign minister, Amir Khan Muttaqi, requested the support of Islamic countries for Afghanistan.
