IEA criticizes Biden for calling Afghanistan a “God-forsaken” place

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) has criticized US President Joe Biden for calling Afghanistan a “God-forsaken place” and vowed to rebuild the country without any foreign support.

“Those making such remarks are doing so out of their frustration and envy for Afghanistan,” IEA spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said at a press conference in Kabul on Saturday.

“There is no need for the cooperation of America and the help of other countries. If they interact with us through the legal channels and legitimate ways, we will respond positively to the interaction, but if they say desperate and complicated things, it is their concern.

“Afghans will continue in the situation they are in and Afghans will make their homeland prosperous by themselves Inshallah,” Mujahid said.

During a speech Friday in California, Biden praised war veterans for serving in Afghanistan, and repeatedly referred to the country as a “God-forsaken” area.

“A lot of you have been to Afghanistan. I’ve been to every part of it. It’s a God-forsaken place — it’s a God-forsaken place,” Biden said.

Biden pulled out all American troops along with NATO allies in August 2021, after two decades of war, which led to the collapse of the former government.

After the IEA swept to power, the US and other Western partners immediately suspended financial assistance to Kabul and imposed sanctions on the new government and froze billions of dollars in foreign reserves.

The United Nations Security Council is set to meet on Afghanistan on Monday to discuss the appointment of a special envoy for Afghanistan and the results of a recent international meeting on Afghanistan in Doha.

Naseer Ahmed Faiq, Chargé d’Affaires of the Afghanistan Permanent Mission to the UN, said that in this meeting, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will present a report about the appointment of special envoy for Afghanistan and the recent international meeting on Afghanistan in Doha.

Security Council Resolution 2721 in December last year requested that the Secretary-General brief the Security Council on the outcome of consultations within 60 days.

But the Islamic Emirate emphasizes that Afghanistan is not in crisis and with the presence of the United Nations Assistance Mission in the country, there is no need to appoint a new representative.

“As for the special representative, the position of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is very clear and there is no need to appoint a special representative for Afghanistan,” Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, said.

“Afghanistan is a secure country and does not suffer from any crisis and needs international cooperation, but within the framework of the cooperation that existed before. In the presence of UNAMA, all issues between the United Nations and Afghanistan will be resolved.”

“There is no need for a special representative. They should cooperate with the people of Afghanistan. They should not prevent Afghanistan’s progress in the diplomatic field and should not consider Afghanistan a country facing a crisis,” Mujahid added.

The UN Doha meeting on Afghanistan was held last week. IEA declined an invitation to attend the meeting.
