The joint statement of the foreign ministers of BRICS member countries states: “stressed the need to provide urgent and uninterrupted humanitarian assistance to the Afghan people and to safeguard the fundamental rights of all Afghans including women, girls and different ethnic groups.”

“Their thinking is that there are certain groups operating in Afghanistan, and they need to reassure them. We should maintain diplomatic relations with regional and global countries so that they can be assured,” said Mohammad Emal Dostyar, a university lecturer.

Political analyst Samiullah Ahmadzai said: “During this period, all politicians have asked the Islamic Emirate to take positive steps in this regard. We should not condition girls’ schools and universities on interaction with the international community; it is in our own best interest.”

The Islamic Emirate has not yet commented on this matter but has consistently assured that Afghan soil will not be used against any country.

Abdul Jamil Shirani, another political analyst, said: “The Islamic Emirate has repeatedly stated and clarified that there should be no concerns about Afghanistan’s territory. There will be no problems for neighboring countries, the region, and even beyond that, for the United States and its allies.”
