The recognition of the Taliban [outlawed in Russia] government of Afghanistan depends on the international community, Ambassador of Pakistan to Kabul Mansoor Ahmad Khan told TASS Saturday.

“I think that, as far as the recognition is concerned, it is a matter of when the neighbors of Afghanistan come together on to a consultative process; when there is harmony in the region and international community about an approach on the way forward about recognition,” the envoy said.

In order to stop the instability in Afghanistan that has been going on for over 45 years, collective efforts of Afghan and regional political actors, as well as of the international community, are needed, in combination with a dialogue between political forces within Afghanistan. According to the envoy, without such dialogue, it is impossible to achieve “a sustainable peace and governance and political framework, which is inclusive, which ensures human rights including rights of women and women’s access to workplaces and colleges, universities and for education opportunities.”

Mansoor Ahmad Khan also stated that claims of Islamabad’s intervention in Afghanistan’s internal politics are groundless.
