Taliban Says Failure to Recognize New Govt Could Lead to Problems for the World

The Index Today

After the U.S and other leading countries refused to recognize Afghanistan’s new government, the Taliban responded, saying that failure to recognize the new regime could have a negative impact not only on their country, but on the world as well.

After the country’s government was forcefully taken by the Taliban back in August, no country has come forward to recognize them officially. To make matters worse, the Afghan Government’s funds have been frozen leading to rapidly declining fiscal health of the nation. Afghanistan’s citizens are currently facing economic and humanitarian issues.

Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said during a conference, “Our message to America, if unrecognition continues, Afghan problems continue, it is the problem of the region and could turn into a problem for the world.” He further explained that the lack of diplomatic relations was the main reason they both were previously at war, saying, “Those issues which caused the war, they could have been seen solved through negotiation, they could been solved through political compromise too.”

Officials from major countries have met to discuss the Taliban movement and its leadership in current affairs. Turkmenistan’s foreign minister Rasit Meredow met with Taliban officials on Saturday to discuss continuations of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India TAPI gas pipeline.

Chinese officials have also concluded talks with Taliban to discuss transport infrastructure finance which was promised earlier. This will help give the nation means to export goods to neighboring countries and boost economic growth.
