MONITORING (SW) – A senior US diplomat has said Washington was faced with a challenge in regard to dealing with the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan.
Zalmi Khalilzad, the former special representative of the United States Department of Foreign Affairs for peace in Afghanistan, said in an interview that the United States is facing a challenge on how it deal with the Islamic Emirate and has not yet found a suitable solution in this regard.
According to Khalilzad, parts of the Doha Agreement have not yet been implemented by the Islamic Emirate and should be implemented. The former special representative of the United States for the peace of Afghanistan has emphasized that the United States is not in favor of the isolation of Afghanistan and that the Islamic Emirate should strive to establish an inclusive government and protect human rights.
“When we closed our embassy in Afghanistan, we thought about what to do with the Islamic Emirate. Now the question is whether to embrace them or put pressure on them so that they step in the right direction to respect human rights, women’s rights and form an inclusive government. We still haven’t found a solution.”
We wanted to have the view of the Islamic Emirate in connection with the words of Zalmi Khalilzad, but we did not succeed despite repeated calls.
Meanwhile, a number of political experts believe that Zalmay Khalilzad’s statements show the depth of America’s helplessness towards Afghanistan.
Mustafa Alizada, an expert on political issues, said it will not have any effect on the impasse that has been in place. “These words will be provocative. If they had acted correctly in the previous rounds, the country would not be in the current situation.”
Ruhollah Hotak, another expert on political issues, said the Americans want to reconsider their withdrawal, which shows the depth of America’s fatigue with the region, especially with Afghanistan.
Almost a year has passed since the Islamic Emirate came into power again, no country has yet recognized their government.
