Taliban spokesman: Afghanistan will no longer be a field of great power rivalry
The foreign minister of the interim Taliban government in Afghanistan stressed that the country will no longer be a field of rivalry between the great powers.
According to AAA News Agency, Mir Khan Muttaki called on the international community to engage positively with Afghanistan on Friday at the “One Year Book Presentation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Achievements” in Kabul and added: “The policy of our government is that Afghanistan will no longer be a field of rivalry between the great powers, if there is competition here, this competition will be positive and based on bilateral interests.”
The foreign minister of the Taliban government in Afghanistan said that the Afghan government seeks good relations with all countries and said that steps should be taken carefully in foreign policy and avoid steps that are not beneficial for the country. Amir Khan Muttaki further said that governments are obliged to provide universal employment and education so that people can work freely and confidently, and this is how the country is developing.
Afghanistan has been an arena of rivalry between colonial powers, including the U.S. and Britain, for decades, and American soldiers, after twenty years of occupation, finally left the country at the end of August 2021. The Taliban seized power in mid-August 2021 and since then has sought recognition from neighboring countries and the international community, which so far has not been achieved. The formation of an inclusive Taliban government in Afghanistan is a condition for the international community to recognize the Taliban government.
