Pakistan FM Meets With Head of OIC on Afghanistan

Zardari asked the international community and Kabul to interact and stop repeating the mistakes of the past.

In a meeting with the head of the OIC, Pakistan’s foreign minister said that the fight against terrorism, respect for human rights, and women’s right to education are conditions for the international community and the Islamic Emirate to engage.

“We must live up to the commitments, the commitments not made by me, not made by you, the commitments made by the interim government in Afghanistan with their own people and with international community on the issue of terrorism on the issue of women’s rights and women’s education, it will help us and help the people of Afghanistan,” said Pakistan’s foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

Zardari asked the international community and Kabul to interact and stop repeating the mistakes of the past.

“For the international community we have consistently insisted that they engage and do not repeat the mistakes of the past … in the last Afghan war and when the conflict is over, the international community washed their hands of the situation in Afghanistan, abandoned the people of Afghanistan, and then we have to pay the price with another Afghan war, we do not want to see that situation and repeat it,” Zardari said.

The head of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) said during the meeting that he will discuss ways to solve the issues facing women in the Afghan education sector with the country’s current government.

“Our concerns at OIC is also the concern of the international community, that is why we will work in coordination with the all member states, especially Afghanistan and other member states, to find out the solutions, especially education of young women, because even my special envoy in Afghanistan went there also to discuss this with the them, but we are continuing to discuss,” said the OIC Secretary-General, His Excellency Hissein Brahim Taha.

However, the spokesperson of the Islamic Emirate noted that the Kabul cannot ignore the principles of Islam and Sharia in order to interact with the international community.

“This road is not one-way. They should be flexible and avoid interfering in Afghanistan’s internal affairs. They should respect Islamic law and principles, avoid criticizing them, and take into account the national interests of the countries,” said Zabiullah Mujahid, the Islamic Emirate spokesman.

According to a political expert, the Islamic Emirate’s interactions with the international community are beneficial to both sides.

“I think that the issues that are raised and contentious will be handled if the world powers have a positive and good engagement with the Islamic Emirate,” said Mohsen Hossieni, a political expert.

Over 15 months have passed since the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan came to power, but no country including the neighboring countries have yet recognized its government.
