“I don’t know the meaning of human rights that they are talking about,” said the foreign minister of the “Taliban” government, Mawlawi Amir Khan Muttaki, noting that “according to our customs and Sharia, we did not prevent women from engaging in any activity.”
Mottaki said in a press conference: “There is a significant improvement in security in the country and the security situation is stable throughout the country, and no battles are taking place in it,” calling on “all Afghans who left the country to return.”
He stressed that “it is necessary to provide travel documents for those who want to leave the country or come to it,” calling on workers in the former Ministry of Foreign Affairs to return to their work and Afghanistan’s representatives abroad to stay at their work sites.
He added, “We welcome the international community’s provision of humanitarian aid worth one billion dollars to Afghanistan,” stressing that “the Taliban is cooperating with donor countries and seeks to deliver aid to those who deserve it.”
Mottaki pointed out that “politics should not be confused with humanitarian aid,” noting that “we want to complete previous projects and seek to provide job opportunities.”
He also called on the Asian Development Bank and the Islamic Development Bank to help Afghanistan in the development sector, criticizing the “US freezing of Afghan money”, describing it as a “brutal act”.
“Afghanistan wants good and bilateral relations with countries around the world, including the United States, who should not put pressure on Afghanistan,” he said, adding: “States that do not recognize our legitimacy have negative policies. The current government is representative of all sects and tribes in Afghanistan, Nor does the inclusive government mean the reappointment of the members of the previous government.
He stressed, “We keep our promises and we ask the countries of the world not to interfere in our affairs. We pledged not to use our lands against any country, and we adhere to this commitment,” stressing, “We want good relations with the countries of the world, but without putting pressure on us.”
