Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan

The fact is that our country has been devastated by a two-decade conflict and our economic system crushed under US sanctions, combining as the main drivers of poverty. These actions have not only hampered foreign investment and financial transactions, but also impacted government activities which purely benefit the general public. Our military policy towards those disrupting security is clear and we have demonstrated it through our actions over the last year. Our defense and security forces have made good progress against Daesh. Following failed efforts to disrupt security on Uzbekistan border in recent months, our security forces launched operations against the perpetrators — killing some and detaining others. We will not allow Daesh or any other group to use the territory of Afghanistan against another country.
Excellencies,
Place: Uzbekistan
Date: 26-27 July, 2022
Following decades of instability, our government has firm determination to transform Afghanistan into the center of peace, stability and economic cooperation. We seek stability for both us and the world. Stability in Afghanistan not only guarantees stability in the entire region, but Afghan stability is a key cog for regional economic prosperity and development. A fundamental pillar of our new foreign policy is economic centralism. The time has come for Afghanistan to practically transform into the crossroad of Asia. Reliable security, serious political will and transparent administrative structure are elements conducive for achieving this end. Afghanistan is the closest and cheapest trade route between Central and South Asia.
We have made a commitment with the international community in the Doha Agreement that no group or individual will be allowed to use the soil of Afghanistan against another country. The first article of the second part of the agreement states: “The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan will not allow any of its own members or any other individual or group, including Al Qaeda, to pose a threat to the security of others from the soil of Afghanistan.”

Our leader laid the foundation for a culture of tolerance and acceptance during periods of Afghan political transition via a general amnesty for all political and military opposition, and ended the disastrous four-decade tradition of revenge. Not only was a general amnesty enforced, but workers from the previous administration continue work in mid-level all the way up to director and deputy minister positions. We have not dismissed anyone for holding differing political views, and this conduct is a first in the history of Afghan political changes.
Excellencies,
But despite these challenges, our government has managed to provide education, health, economic and other services within its capacity. After a long delay, we successfully reopened doors of universities where hundreds of thousands of students are currently attaining higher education. Moreover, schools have been opened on a large scale across the country where the government is providing all necessary services. We have added thousands of jobs to the education sector and announced seven thousand new vacancies.
The Islamic Emirate has created a contact group for return of former political figures at Prime Minister’s Political Deputy level where majority members are state Ministers. Due to the blessing of this initiative, a number of former senior and junior officials of the previous administration have returned to their country in a short period and are currently residing in their homeland. This process has even allowed return of our former military opposition whom now enjoy normal lives. We in reality opened a new phase of engagement with our former political and military rivals. Even now, tens of known figures contact this group daily, seeking a return to their homeland. The Islamic Emirate believes that Afghanistan is the shared home of Afghans and all have a right to a dignified life in their homeland.
We stand ready to establish positive relations with all world countries in the framework of mutual respect and legitimate bilateral interests. And we also call on world countries to fulfill their responsibilities in this regard. We urge the United States of America to unconditionally release all reserves of the Afghan central bank and lift all economic santions on Afghanistan. This is a fundamental step towards normalization of relations, and this action will have a positive impact on the mindset of Afghans vis-a-vis America.
