Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, criticized the meetings on Afghanistan in neighboring countries, saying that the "Illegal meetings held outside the country are launched with the aim of weakening the country and the system."
Speaking at the Ministry of Defense's special forces graduation ceremony, Stanikzai urged the Islamic Emirate’s forces to be ready for the battlefield.
“We were doing guerrilla wars but now we have to be prepared for the wars in the battlefield. We have to prepare ourselves for battlefield wars against the enemy,” he said.
He also emphasized the role of the Islamic Emirate’s forces, saying that the world Muslims have expectations of the Islamic Emirate’s forces.
Meanwhile, political analysts urged the Islamic Emirate and its opposition to solve the issues through negotiations.
“The Islamic Emirate should bring professional reforms in its administration.
It should respect the rights of women, minorities and human rights of Afghans and it should accept the international norms, so the opposition doesn’t find any reason against it,” said Wahid Faqiri, a political analyst.
“The path to solutions is engagement and acceptance of each other. The patients are important for the destiny of the country,” said Sayed Hasham Balkhabi, political analyst.
Stanikzai also called on the Afghan political leaders to return to the country.
