Islamic Emirate to be recognized by world any time soon

The Islamic Emirate has fulfilled its responsibilities to meet its obligations; therefore, the neighboring countries and the region have accepted them as the rulers of Afghanistan. The path to international recognition is almost on the way and it appears that the Islamic Emirate will be soon achieving official recognition. Most countries have already maintained relations with the Islamic Emirate and are signing contracts and exchanging diplomats, which means that the Islamic Emirate will be recognized by these countries and the world any time soon. It the time that the world should diplomatically recognize Afghanistan’s government as it has fulfilled all responsibilities to meet its obligations. The neighboring countries should first take a bold step and should diplomatically recognize the Afghan government. Kazakhstan has taken a bold step as the country’s authorities have decided to remove the IEA from the banned list. At a meeting of representatives of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) countries, Kazakh’s President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev made a statement about the ‘removal of the Islamic Emirate’ from the terrorist list. This was reported on Monday, 3 June, by the official website of the country’s president. It happened based on the importance of developing trade and economic cooperation with modern Afghanistan and the understanding that the Islamic Emirate is a long-term factor,’ the press service quoted the head of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, as saying. According to the publication, Tokayev made this statement during a meeting with the speakers of the Houses of Parliament of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). According to the president, one of the strategic tasks at the current stage is to actively involve Afghanistan in interregional relations, the press service said. ‘The president called for support for Kazakhstan’s initiative to establish a UN Regional Centre for Sustainable Development Goals for Central Asia and Afghanistan in Almaty,’ the statement said. On 27 May, the Russian Foreign Ministry and the Ministry of Justice reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin that the Islamic Emirate could be removed from the list of organizations banned in the country. Zamir Kabulov, who is Putin’s special representative for Afghanistan, has previously stated that the Islamic Emirate can be removed from the list of organizations banned in Russia only after it is done at the level of the UN Security Council. In the meantime, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has recently said that the Islamic Emirate is the real power in Afghanistan, and ‘Russia is not indifferent to this.’ Russian authorities have also said that Moscow will conditionally support Afghanistan’s candidacy to become a member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). “I think yes,” Russia’s special envoy for Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov said during a briefing in Moscow, in response to a corresponding question on the matter. “Afghanistan must bring its economy into some relative order so that the rest of the SCO members consider its entry expedient,” Kabulov said. Kabulov further said Moscow does not rule out cooperation between Afghanistan and the Russia-led Collective Security Treaty Organization because of the Islamic Emirate’s “same attitude towards the fight against both international terrorism and drug crime.” He went on to express Moscow’s interest in further expanding cooperation with Afghanistan in fighting international terrorism and drug crime. “We hope that both Russian and Afghan businesses will find common areas of application that will lead to further growth in the volume of trade between the two countries,” he added. There are hopes that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) will be recognized by neighboring and regional countries and the world at any time soon. Mukhtar Safi
