taliban: Failure to recognise Afghanistan govt could have global effects, warn Taliban

Published:


KABUL: The Taliban called on the US and other countries on Saturday to recognise their government in Afghanistan, saying that a failure to do so and the continued freezing of Afghan funds abroad would lead to problems not only for the country but for the world.
No country has formally recognised the Taliban government, while billions of dollars in Afghan assets and funds abroad have also been frozen. “Our message to America is, if unrecognition continues, Afghan problems continue, it is the problem of the region and could turn into a problem for the world,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said.
He said the reason the Taliban and the US went to war last time was also because the two did not have formal diplomatic ties. “Those issues which caused the war, they could have been solved through negotiation,” Mujahid said.
Meanwhile, a US government watchdog on Friday accused the state department and Pentagon of suppressing information regarding the collapse of Afghanistan’s former government and military. “The full picture of what happened in August will only be revealed if the information that the departments of defence and state have restricted from public is made available,” said John Sopko, the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction (Sigar). A state department spokesperson said Sigar has the authority to restore the reports.
