The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is committed to bringing peace and prosperity to Afghanistan. The agreement signed on the 29th February 2020 in Doha between the Islamic Emirate and the United States was the outcome of tireless and compelling efforts of the Political Office of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in Doha.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan signed the Doha Agreement to achieve the goals of its struggle – to end the foreign occupation and to establish a pure Islamic system of governance, to preserve national interests of Afghanistan and aspiration of the people. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has adhered to the agreement.
As it was agreed that the intra-Afghan talks will begin in the immediate aftermath of the prisoner release process, we are witnessing the intra-Afghan talks taking place in Doha this week. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s position has been very clear about the composition of intra-Afghan negotiations; the intra-Afghan negotiations, as mentioned in the Doha agreement, shall be between the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and other Afghan parties in order resolve the internal matters related the future of Afghanistan.
The Kabul regime, pathetically, has started mere propaganda disseminating false and misleading information about the structure of intra-Afghan talks. The regime is trying to depict as if the intra-Afghan talks are between the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the so-called Republic of Afghanistan. In reality, the negotiation team flying from Kabul to Doha is not representative of ordinary Afghans, rather it is a team of Afghans from different groups, parties and other social and political entities of Afghanistan. More importantly, the fake “Republic” drawn from illegitimate and fraudulent elections under the shadow of foreign occupation, cannot represent the people of Afghanistan. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has constantly made it clear that the Kabul regime has no legitimacy and will never be recognized as a representative of the people of Afghanistan. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has assured all Afghans that it will adhere on its stand in this matter and will not recognize the fake “Republic”.
Another propaganda tool in the hands of media trolls of Kabul regime is the so-called “achievements” of the past 19 years. What are these achievements? Anyone rational and truthful will acknowledge that the so-called achievements of the last 19 years have been corruption, poverty, oppression, embezzlement, crime, injustice and this list can go on and on. A handful of warlords became millionaires from the money that had been given as foreign aid. The public treasury went into the pockets of a few palace dwellers. The poor became poorer.
Peace is the only way forward for the people of Afghanistan, but only a real and dignified peace in which Afghanistan is free from foreign occupation and influence of every other country.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has always been committed to inclusive talks with all Afghans, from different walks of life. In a country like Afghanistan with more than 99.7 % adhering to the Islamic faith, people want an Islamic government. Islam is the way of life of every Afghan. As per the aspiration of Afghans, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in engaging in the intra-Afghan talks to include every Afghan in the formation of an Islamic system that will provide justice, equality and prosperity to every Afghan in the future. Intra-Afghan talks and the establishment of a real and pure Islamic system will bring peace in which the dignity of every citizen is protected.
