International community must stop meddling in Afghan affairs, Taliban say

Criticizing the freezing of Afghanistan’s assets by the United States, Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund, Prime Minister of the Islamic Emirate, on Sunday urged the international community to stop interfering in Afghanistan’s internal affairs.

“We said we will not hurt anyone or any country and we don’t want to be embarrassed by any country. We keep our promises because we are Muslims. We call on foreign countries not to create problems for Muslims and keep your promises,” Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund said.

He further called on the Afghans to return to their country, stressing the good security situation in the country. However, that still seems a long way off, as the country is grappling with a serious humanitarian crisis according to international assessments.

Afghanistan now has the highest number of people in emergency food insecurity in the world, with more than 23 million people in need of assistance and around 95% of the population with insufficient food consumption.

Sirajuddin Haqqani, the acting interior minister, said in a statement on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr that the amnesty decree was the commitment of the leader of the Islamic Emirate, that everyone must follow, and that the forces that violate it will be brought to justice in the near future.

The Taliban took control of Afghanistan on August 15, 2021, rolling back progress on women’s rights and media freedom – key achievements of post-2001 reconstruction efforts in gender equality and freedom of speech. expression, according to the media.

Notably, the human rights situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated since the collapse of the Afghan government. Although the fighting in the country has ended, serious human rights violations continue unabated.
