IEA pursuing opportunities for shared interests, peaceful coexistence

Since the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) takeover in mid-August 2021, the country’s Minister of Foreign Affairs has set a foreign policy which is based on a balanced and independent approach, that avoids entanglement in global and regional rivalries. Besides, the Islamic Emirate will pursue opportunities for shared interests and peaceful coexistence, based on the principle of equality and respect. Afghanistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs has always made it clear that Afghanistan’s foreign policy is based on a balanced and independent approach as Mawlavi Amir Khan Muttaqi, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, has stressed on it in meetings with officials of the world and regional countries. The country’s minister of foreign affairs has paid visits to various countries in the region and world. He is now in Islamabad to hold talks with his Pakistani and Chinese counterparts. Accompanied by a high-level delegation, Muttaqi left Kabul for Islamabad on Friday. According to a statement released by the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, led by Amir Khan Muttaqi, Afghanistan’s delegation will hold talks with Pakistani officials on bilateral political and trade ties, regional stability and transit between Afghanistan and Pakistan. During his stay, the country’s minister of foreign affairs will also attend in the 6th tripartite meeting of the foreign ministers of Afghanistan, China and Pakistan. The foreign ministers of Afghanistan and China has also had bilateral talks during their visits in Pakistan. The Islamic Emirate’s delegation to Islamabad led by the IEA minister of foreign affairs Amir Khan Muttaqi is considered as one of the most high-profile to travel abroad since the Islamic Emirate seized power in mid-August 2021. Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang, making his first visit to Pakistan since being appointed in December, will also hold bilateral talks with his Pakistani counterpart Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. China has been Pakistan’s key ally and also its most vital economic partner through loans and infrastructure projects totaling billions of dollars. Since the Islamic Emirate takeover, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) has stressed on dialogue and talks with the international community and countries in the world and region. Besides, the Islamic Emirate has repeatedly extended its hand of positive engagement to the world. The Islamic Emirate has also called on the international community to establish political and economic relations with the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, while respecting its sovereignty and territorial integrity. Currently, the IEA has good relations with regional countries including Pakistan, China and Iran and other countries in the region. In recent days, some regional and international meetings have been held without the participation of the Islamic Emirate representatives. This week, a meeting in India of foreign ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization – of which Kabul has observer status – discussed Afghanistan without the presence of any representatives of the Islamic Emirate. The Islamic Emirate has repeatedly made it clear that no regional and international meetings are productive if held without the presence of representatives from the Islamic Emirate. It is the Islamic Emirate that can represent the people of Afghanistan and can better explain all those challenges facing the people and country. Currently, Afghanistan is facing dire humanitarian crises, international aid agencies say, with its 38 million population hungry and three million children at risk of malnutrition. This comes following sanctions that have been imposed on the country and Islamic Emirate by the international community. Mohammad Daud
