Turkey Says Islamic Emirate Needs to Take Practical Steps

AT News

KABUL: The Foreign Minister of Turkey, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said the Islamic Emirate needs to take practical steps, mainly toward an inclusive government, in order to be recognized.

He made the remarks at the closing of the Antalya Diplomacy Forum.

A delegation of the Islamic Emirate, led by the acting Foreign Minister, Amir Khan Muttaqi attended at the Antalya Diplomacy Forum, which was held from March 11to 13.

“We focused on the importance of recognition for the Afghan people. Without recognition, many of the problems will not be resolved. There are lots of different types of humanitarian assistance and help initiatives, but without recognition, they will not be able to overcome the obstacles,” he said.

He added that so far, the Islamic Emirate has made positive messages and announcements, but those have not been put into practice. He said the current government authorities in Kabul should take practical steps to be recognized. Cavusoglu said his country has been engaging with the Islamic Emirate, but it is in no rush to recognize it. “We are not in a rush to recognize them, because just like the rest of the world, we need to see the steps tangibly being taken,” he said.

The Afghan delegation met with Uzbekistan Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov, discussing the trade and economic relations between the two countries as well as future relations between Afghanistan and Central Asia.

“Minister Muttaqi stressed that regional countries in a fast transforming political, economic and security environment should increase confidence in each other to save the region from repercussions of political changes,” the Foreign Ministry said in a tweet.
