The Islamic Emirate emphasizes Afghanistan’s presence in regional affairs. Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate, said that any organization established for discussions on regional issues should include Afghanistan.

Mujahid said Afghanistan’s interactions and shared economy with regional countries are significant reasons for its presence in such organizations.

The spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate said: “Any organization or body established for regional issues and discussions should include Afghanistan. Afghanistan is one of the regional countries and has many dependencies with neighboring countries. We have shared interactions, a shared economy, shared trade, transit, as well as shared health and environmental issues that require coordination.”

Zabihullah Mujahid said that the Islamic Emirate seeks good relations with all countries of the world, including Tajikistan.

In part of his speech, he reassured the international community about the security of Afghanistan’s territory.

Zabihullah Mujahid said: “Afghanistan wants good relations with all countries, including Tajikistan, and has proven this. Any concerns about Afghanistan’s soil should be reassured — Afghanistan’s soil will not be used against any country.”

Political analysts said Afghanistan’s presence in regional organizations, including the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, are important for alleviating concerns about Afghanistan.

Gulab Khan Baz, a political analyst said: “Afghanistan should be present in these organizations, as it benefits both the world and Afghanistan. If Afghanistan remains excluded, it is due to the world’s neglect of Afghanistan over the past 45 years.”

Previously, Russia’s special envoy for Afghanistan stated that Tajikistan opposed Afghanistan’s presence in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, a claim that Tajikistani officials have denied.
