Taliban Spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid has claimed that the world will soon recognize the group.

Mujahid, the deputy minister of information and culture, has said that representatives of a number of countries have visited Afghanistan and they (the Taliban) have also sent a letter to the UN Secretary-General for recognition.

Mujahid added that this is their right to be recognized and stated that the leaders of the Taliban are busy talking with the UN.

It has been more nearly 45 days since the Taliban took over entire Afghanistan but they are not yet recognized by any country.

Respecting human and women’s rights, forging an inclusive government, and not allowing Afghanistan to be safe haven for terrorism and extremism are the conditions put by the international community for recognizing the Taliban.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has promised to be implementing all these, but none of them seems to be implemented yet.

On the other hand, the US has frozen nearly ten billion dollars of Afghanistan’s assets in its banks which can lead to an economic and humanitarian crisis if not unfrozen.
