Muttaqi Asks Afghan Diplomats in Uzbekistan to Continue Their ‘Satisfactory’ Work

7/26/2022

Amir Khan Muttaqi, Taliban’s foreign minister, asked Afghan diplomats in Uzbekistan to continue with their activities at the country’s embassy.

Muttaqi, who visited the Afghan embassy in Tashkent on Monday, added that the group is satisfied with the embassy’s performance.

Taliban’s foreign minister, who travelled to Uzbekistan to participate in an international conference on Afghanistan, visited the embassy of Afghanistan in Tashkent for the first time.

On August 15, 2021, Taliban took over Afghanistan and all the government infrastructure. Since then, no country has recognized the Taliban as a legitimate government in Afghanistan.

The Taliban has continuously tried to take efforts to take over the management of Afghanistan's embassies and political representations. So far, the group has only had luck with Islamabad, Tehran, and Moscow, to install Taliban representatives. Many countries in the world haven’t cooperated with the group.

Among other initiatives, the Taliban has sent official letters to Afghanistan embassies seeking their cooperation and support, however, most of these efforts have failed.

A number of Afghan diplomats told media personnel that they did not pay attention to the Taliban's letters and their request to hold online meetings. These diplomats have stressed that their work is to lobby for the formation of a democratic government based on elections in Afghanistan.
