A large gathering of religious scholars and influential people from Kabul province was held in the Loya Jirga tent on Wednesday, with senior officials of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) also attending.
Addressing the gathering, Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Amir Khan Muttaqi said that the opponents of the Islamic Emirate should take lessons from the past because uniting with the enemies of the country and asking them for help is not in anyone’s interest.
Abdul Salam Hanafi, the administrative deputy of the prime minister, said: “More than 70 percent of the government’s budget and expenses used to be provided by foreigners. Alhamdulillah, after the end of the occupation in the hands of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, all government institutions were reorganized.”
The Acting Minister of Interior said that after the establishment of the Islamic Emirate, violence in the country has disappeared and there is one leadership in all of Afghanistan. Sirajuddin Haqqani considered maintaining unity important for the survival of the existing system.
In conclusion, the Ulema Council of Kabul Province issued a 12-point declaration and called for people’s support for the Islamic system and asked the Islamic Emirate to engage with the international community within the framework of national and Islamic interests.
The declaration also called on the international community to recognize the ground realities and engage responsibility with the IEA.
