IEA leader issues Eid message, invites Afghans to return home



(Last Updated On: April 29, 2022)

Hebatullah Akhundzada, the supreme leader of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA), issued a message Friday on the occasion of the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr and called on Afghans to return to their country and on the international community to recognize the government.

Akhundzada reiterated that the IEA has granted a general amnesty to all opposition and has implemented the order.

“On the basis of this amnesty, I once again invite all Afghans to come to their country and live peacefully,” Akhundzada said.
“This country is no longer capable of carrying out any conspiracy,” he said.

He warned that if anyone violates the amnesty and “try to start a war in the country, then they will face a harsh and severe reaction and the nation will allow none to disturb peace and security of the country through foreign encouragement.”

In the message, Akhundzada also emphasized the need for the full implementation of the Doha agreement and to move forward “in the spirit of cooperation instead of pressure.”

“The Islamic Emirate has implemented its commitments and will continue to do so,” he said.

Citing the world’s need for peace and security, Akhundzada called on the world to recognize IEA “so that we may address our problems formally and within diplomatic norms and principles.”

He also called on the neighboring countries to give Afghan refugees time and permission to return to their homeland voluntarily and with dignity.

“Violation of human rights is not in the interest of anyone, rather it causes constant hatred and animosity between the nations,” Akhundzada said.
He said that IEA respects and is committed to all the Sharia rights of men and women in Afghanistan and “no one should worry about it and do not use this humanitarian and emotional issue as a tool for political ends.”

Akhundzada also said that the IEA is working to strengthen education and learning and is committed to taking further steps in this regard as “education is the key to rescue our compatriots and pave the way towards country’s development and prosperity.”

Chinese envoy accuses US of having double standards



(Last Updated On: August 17, 2022)

Anti-terrorism operations should not be conducted at the cost of other countries’ sovereignty, China’s Ambassador to Afghanistan Wang Yu said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a press conference in Kabul, Wang accused the US of adopting “double standards” in the fight against terrorism.

He said that the number of terrorist organizations in Afghanistan has increased to more than 20 from less than 10 in 2001.

The envoy said that US drones are still patrolling in Afghan airspace.

“Anti-terrorism should not be conducted at the cost of other countries’ sovereignty,” Wang said.

According to the diplomat, the US pursued its own interests only in Afghanistan and the American political system and values brought chaos.

“The US promoted democratic system and Western values in Afghanistan, which did not conform to Afghanistan’s national conditions, the will of its people and the Afghan culture,” he said.

The envoy also criticized US for imposing sanctions on Afghanistan, including the freezing of its assets, saying it has caused hardships in the country.

Wang however said that China continued to help Afghanistan after the political change in August last year, including by delivering humanitarian assistance.

“Last year we overcame a lot of difficulties to open the air corridor for the pine nuts imports to China and more than 16,000 tons of pine nuts were exported to China which has brought more than $20 million dollars revenue to Afghan farmers and businessmen,” Wang said.

He said that China has plans to cooperate in the areas of mining and energy in Afghanistan.

“China and Afghanistan relations will become deeper and deeper in the future,” Wang said.

(Last Updated On: August 16, 2022)

The young generation of Herat province has raised concerns about the high rate of unemployment in the province and said no initiatives have been taken over the past 20 years to create job opportunities for them.

According to them, hundreds of experienced and educated people have lost their jobs over the past year and that in this time the Department of Information and Culture has only managed to organize some training programs aimed at improving the capacity of young people.

“What we were hoping for was to change the system and take serious action for the youth, but as you can see, men and women are unemployed, girls’ schools are closed,” said Fatima Rezai, a resident of Herat.

“Unfortunately, the problems of the youth are economic problems and the current situation is known to everyone, there is no work and the projects have stopped, therefore, there is a need to restart these projects,” said another resident.

However, Herat’s Department of Information and Culture said that during the last year, efforts have been made to retain the youth who worked for the previous government, and that many of them are still employed within the department.

“We promise all our people, especially our youth, that in various sectors where there are gaps, Inshallah the Islamic Emirate will take action to solve it as soon as possible,” said Naimulhaq Haqqani, director of Herat’s Information and Culture department.

Hussain Naemi, head of youth affairs at the department said: “So far, we have been able to organize training classes for 1,000 young people, and in the field of youth capacity building, we have also done various technical and web workshops, English and computer classes.”
