The leader of the Taliban, Mullah Hebatullah Ajundzada, has assured this Friday during a speech in the Afghan city of Kandahar that they will not allow anyone to interfere with the current government and has pointed out that they are ready to engage with the international community, always within the framework of the ‘sharia’.
The second high-level meeting, which was not covered by the media and was held on Thursday, is the second largest to be held since the Taliban regime took over Afghanistan, Tolo TV reported on Friday.
It should be recalled that the Taliban, who since August 15, 2021 control Afghanistan, are celebrating the “independence” anniversary with different activities in cities such as Afghanistan’s capital Kabul and Kandahar.
Acting Foreign Minister Amir Jan Muttaqi explained during the meeting that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has been represented in the “best” way around the world. “Afghanistan will not be a conflict between world powers and its soil will not be used against anyone,” he explained.
“The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan wants good relations with all countries, but we cannot expect relations with some countries to normalize quickly after 20 years of war,” he has warned, as reported by the pro-Taliban Bajtar News agency.
Ajundzada, who has not been recorded or photographed in public since the Taliban seized power in August 2021, as well as other senior officials, already participated in another large meeting of the same characteristics in Kabul last July.
