US Reacts to Acting Minister of Interior's Visit to UAE

The spokesperson for the US State Department, Matthew Miller, said countries that host members of the “Taliban" who are under sanctions must do so through a United Nations-mandated exemption process.

In a press conference, Miller said: “I would just note that member states hosting UN- sanctioned Taliban members must seek permission for travel through an exemption process as outlined by the UN 1988 sanctions committee and it’s important that member states follow these procedures.” 

These remarks come as Khalifa Sirajuddin Haqqani, the acting Minister of Interior of the Islamic Emirate, recently visited the United Arab Emirates. Haqqani's unexpected trip to the UAE is his first trip abroad since the Islamic Emirate's return to power.

Without commenting on Matthew Miller's remarks, the Islamic Emirate has described the acting Minister of Interior's trip to the UAE as productive.

Zabihullah Mujahid, spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate, told TOLOnews: "The acting Minister of Interior had talks with UAE officials, discussing various topics including Afghanistan's relations with the UAE and the release of Afghan prisoners."

Three days ago, the acting Minister of Interior, leading a delegation, went to the UAE, accompanied by Abdul Haq Wasiq, Director of the General Directorate of Intelligence, and Anas Haqqani, a senior member of the Islamic Emirate.
