The world must recognize the outfit if they do not want to receive any threat from Afghanistan, the Taliban has warned the international community. Speaking at a press conference on 30 October, Taliban spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid said they must be recognized as a responsible side, Khaama Press news agency reported.
In a statement that appeared as a possible warning, Mujahid stated the Taliban will not take any responsibility to avert threats to other countries until and unless they are recognized by the international community. He said that recognition is a bilateral need.
“We fought the US because they did not recognize us in the past. If the Taliban is not recognized, it will only increase problems in Afghanistan, the region and the world,” said Mujahid.
He further claimed that the Taliban has completed all preconditions of their recognition and the world will recognize them “one way or the other.”
Mujahid asked all the countries to activate their diplomatic missions in Afghanistan.
Two months have passed since the outfit took over Afghanistan.
Aside from a handful of countries including Pakistan and China, no other country has shown any keenness to increase engagement with the Taliban.
The rest of the international community is observing the rights situation in the country and are focused on curtailing the humanitarian crisis in the country.
