The upcoming Doha meeting represents a critical opportunity for Afghanistan to engage with the international community and convey the real picture of Afghanistan to the world. The participation of the Afghan government in this meeting will facilitate the enhancement of bilateral interactions and collaborations across political, economic, and social domains. This engagement aims to foster the welfare, stability, progress, and prosperity of Afghanistan and its citizens, who have long endured pain, suffering, and adversity. Afghanistan’s meaningful participation in this forum is poised to yield substantial achievements, including but not limited to the following: 1. Political Legitimacy and Stability: Attending the Doha meeting is crucial for the political legitimacy of the Afghan government. Participation in international dialogues offers a platform for Afghan leaders to articulate their views, policies, and strategies for global engagement and to garner international support. Moreover, meaningful involvement in such an international forum can facilitate pathways to stability, and developmental and economic initiatives in Afghanistan. Considering the country’s turbulent history, participation in international negotiations can create a favorable environment for political dialogue both domestically and internationally, which, in turn, can lead to a more stable and peaceful Afghanistan. 2. Economic Growth and Development: Afghanistan’s economy has suffered extensive damage due to four decades of war, destruction, and political instability. International meetings, such as the Doha, are indis pensable for the economic reconstruction and development of Afghanistan. By actively participating in this meeting, Afghanistan can accurately portray its current situation and seek global assistance, investments, and cooperation for executing economic, national, and mega projects. This will be critical in rebuilding infrastructure, promoting industrial and agricultural growth, and creating employment and economic opportunities for the Afghan people. In addition, Afghanistan’s strategic location positions it as a potential regional hub for trade and transit; engagement with international stakeholders can help realize this potential, enhancing regional interaction, cooperation, and economic strengthening. 3. Humanitarian Aid and Development: Following the withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan, the imposition of various sanctions, and the cessation of international aid, many Afghans are facing severe economic hardship and require assistance and support to sustain their livelihoods. Active participation of Afghanistan in the Doha meeting will provide an opportunity to address the urgent needs of Afghans and allocate aid to alleviate the economic obstacles. International support for humanitarian aid is vital for those affected by war, poverty, and natural disasters, as well as for completing unfinished projects and initiating new developmental and economic initiatives to improve living conditions and strengthen the national economy. International forums also provide a platform to discuss strategies for addressing environmental protection, climate change management, education, and food security. Through coordination with donor organizations and countries, Afghanistan can develop and implement effective programs to tackle these issues. 4. Regional and Global Diplomacy: Participation in the Doha meeting will also enhance Afghanistan’s role in regional and global diplomacy. This meeting provides an opportunity to bolster Afghanistan’s diplomatic relations with neighboring countries, the broader region, and other international actors. These relationships are crucial for promoting regional cooperation to achieve longterm objectives such as ensuring comprehensive security, fostering national economic growth, enhancing trade and transit, and addressing environmental concerns. Diplomatic engagement with the international community can help Afghanistan navigate complex geopolitical dynamics and effectively represent and safeguard its national interests on the global stage. In conclusion, the participation of Afghan government representatives in the Doha meeting is not only advantageous but essential for the political and economic future of the country. This meeting presents an opportunity to secure international support, promote economic development, address humanitarian needs, strengthen security cooperation, and expand Afghanistan’s diplomatic relations. Through active participation in international dialogues, Afghanistan can pave the way for a more stable, prosperous, and peaceful future and take decisive steps towards economic self-sufficiency
