Taliban spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid has claimed that the world will soon recognise the Taliban, local media reported on Sunday. The deputy minister said that representatives of a number of countries have visited Afghanistan and they (the Taliban) have also sent a letter to the UN Secretary-General for recognition, The Khaama Press reported. Mujahid said that this is their right to be recognised and added that the leaders of the Taliban are busy talking with the UN.
Meanwhile, Russia, United States, Japan, Canada, France, UK have expressed that the countries are not planning to recognise the government formed by the Taliban.
Respecting human and women's rights, forging an inclusive government, and not allowing Afghanistan to be safe haven for terrorism and extremism are the conditions put by the international community for recognising the Taliban. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has promised to be implementing all these, but none of them seems to be implemented yet.
Afghanistan plunged into crisis last month after Kabul fell to the Taliban and the democratically elected government of former president Ashraf Ghani collapsed.
