In an interview with an Indian news channel on Friday, July 29, Afghanistan’s acting Interior Minister Sirajuddin Haqqani said that the al-Qaeda network does not have a military presence in Afghanistan and that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) is bound by its commitments to the international community to fight ISIS.

Haqqani added that al-Qaeda does not have a military force in Afghanistan and that the network is no longer a threat to the security of the region and the world.

“As we have promised to the world also the Islamic world is in arms against the ISIS to control and throw it out; many steps have been taken with regard to al-Qaeda, it has no presence in Afghanistan and is no more a threat and the world is required not to feel threatened about the already dead outfit some Western forces which are trying to destabilize the country are being taken care of by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan to control and contain these forces,” said Haqqani.

“We have repeatedly said that the Treaty of Doha which was signed will be implemented in letter and spirit and our message to the world is that no such terror outfit will make Afghanistan its Center of Terror operation; our security agencies are competing to prevent and to nip such attempts in the bud and we are firmly united against such forces,” he added.

Haqqani describes India’s concern about the presence of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JEM) and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) groups in Afghanistan as baseless and emphasized that the Islamic Emirate is ready to provide security to diplomatic missions of foreign countries, including India.

“India’s concern about the presence of Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Taiba in Afghanistan is baseless, we want to have very close relations with India, such fear is baseless and undesirable,” said Haqqani.

Previously, several high-ranking officials of the Islamic Emirate have made assurances in interviews with the Indian media that they will ensure the security of diplomatic missions and political officials of this country, and New Delhi can continue its construction activities and complete unfinished projects with peace of mind.

Pakistan and Russia would review progress of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) in terms of fulfilling its commitments made to the international community on forming an inclusive government, and to deny terrorist groups a haven to operate from its soil, official sources told Pakistani media on Sunday.

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, who is in Moscow, is scheduled to meet his Russian counterpart, Sargey Lavrov on Monday and one of the key issues on their agenda is Afghanistan, The Tribune reported.

This is Zardari’s first visit to Moscow as the foreign minister and comes amid rising concerns on the part of Pakistan over the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militant group, which Islamabad says is being provided sanctuary in Afghanistan.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a tweet that the two ministers would discuss the fight against terrorism and a number of regional topics, including the situation in Afghanistan, Syria and Ukraine.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Sunday called on the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) authorities to strive towards reopening schools and universities for girls and enable them to enroll in all levels of education.

In a series of tweets the OIC General Secretariat expressed its disappointment over the decision announced on Saturday by the IEA’s ministry of higher education, banning female students from taking university entrance exams this year in all public and private universities across the country.

“This latest decree further tightens the sweeping restrictions proclaimed by the Kabul de facto authorities on girls’ and women’s access to education and public work,” OIC tweeted.

The ban comes shortly after the OIC Executive Committee convened on 11 January 2023 an Extraordinary Meeting on the “Recent Developments and the Humanitarian Situation in Afghanistan”.

The Final Communique of the meeting called on the IEA to “…strive towards reopening schools and universities for girls and enable them to enroll in all levels of education and all specializations required by the Afghan people.”

The organization urged IEA to reconsider this latest decision and earlier edicts especially for its far-reaching social and economic ramifications.
