International pressures on IEA will lead to instability in Afghanistan: Muttaqi

Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi says international pressures against the Islamic Emirate will lead Afghanistan to uncontrollable insecurity and instability.

In an event titled “waiver of tax penalties, supporting industry and trade” held on Sunday at the presidential palace, Muttaqi made these statements.

The foreign minister has said that continuing any pressure on the Islamic Emirate will not benefit any side.

“If anyone puts high pressure on Afghanistan, it means that it will lead Afghanistan to insecurity and instability, and this time no one will be able to control it, but this is not in the interest of anyone,” said Muttaqi.

Referring to the recent security incidents in the country, he also said that some foreign circles are involved in making the situation unsafe in Afghanistan.

“Today, in the security concerns, ask the intelligence whether internal or external hands are involved. Where do those who are arrested in connection with these events come from?” he asked.

“That’s why we call on Afghanistan’s neighbors that a peaceful and stable Afghanistan is beneficial to the entire region.”

Muttaqi still does not consider the recent border tensions between Afghanistan and Pakistan to the benefit of any side and asks this country to adhere to the principles of diplomacy and neighborliness towards Afghanistan.

“We appeal to Pakistan that border tensions are neither for your benefit nor for our benefit, we ask you [Pakistan] the same when we address you as a Muslim brother,” he said.

“When we provided you [Pakistan] the transitway to Central Asia, we also ask you to provide us the transitway,” he added.

Meanwhile, the IEA’s foreign minister has also called on the international community to take the path of negotiation and dialogue with the Islamic Emirate instead of applying pressure, because according to him, the only solution to Afghanistan’s problems is negotiation.

The United States understands the importance of Chabahar Port for continued humanitarian supplies to Afghanistan and to provide the country economic alternatives, India’s foreign ministry said on Friday.

 India recently signed a 10-year agreement to develop and operate Iran’s strategic Chabahar Port as New Delhi aims to boost trade ties with landlocked Afghanistan and Central Asian countries, bypassing ports in its western neighbour and arch foe Pakistan.

But the deal has prompted a thinly veiled threat of sanctions from the United States, with whom India has developed close economic and military ties in recent decades.

India’s foreign ministry spokesman, Randhir Jaiswal, noted that since 2018, India has supplied 85,000 metric tons of wheat, 200 metric tons of pulses and 40,000 litres of pesticide Malathion to Afghanistan through Chabahar Port.

“The United States also has an understanding…understands the importance of Chabahar Port for continued humanitarian supplies to Afghanistan and to provide Afghanistan economic alternatives,” he said in a press conference.

“Our External Affairs Minister also spoke on this matter in several forums recently, where he said that we should not take a narrow view of this particular project, it has an important role to play as far as the region is concerned, connectivity is concerned, particularly for the landlocked countries in the area,” he added.

He also said that Russia‘s special envoy to Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov, met with an Indian delegation led by Joint Secretary, J.P. Singh, who looks after Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, in the Ministry of External Affairs, essentially exchange of views on the ground and the situation and how the two countries look at the situation.

He said that they emphasized on the need to provide development assistance and humanitarian support to the people of Afghanistan.

Iran’s special representative for Afghanistan, Hassan Kazemi Qomi, said in a meeting with his Italian counterpart that the next UN-convened meeting on Afghanistan should reflect the realities of the country.

Qomi said that Tehran is ready to work with Europe on the development of a comprehensive cooperation plan for Afghanistan based on the consultations it has conducted.

He added that the topics of the third meeting of special envoys on Afghanistan in Doha should be based on the realities of the region and Afghanistan.

“The actions of countries outside the region have not been useful in solving the crisis and challenges of Afghanistan so far, and if this situation continues, Europe will also be plagued by the problems,” he said.

The last meeting of the United Nations on Afghanistan was held in Doha in February this year, but it failed to achieve its primary objectives.
