The Defense Minister of the Taliban expressed concern that American pressure is impeding the international recognition of Afghanistan’s ruling administration.
Mullah Muhammad Yaqub Mujahid called upon independent nations to officially recognize the government in Kabul.
“Afghanistan’s ruling body has fulfilled all the necessary requirements for recognition, but many countries are reluctant to acknowledge it due to the influence of American pressure,” Mullah Muhammad Yaqub emphasized.
In a plea to countries that “remain steadfast against American pressure,” especially Islamic nations, he appealed for their recognition of Afghanistan’s ruling administration.
Prior to this, Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban spokesperson, also attributed the United States as the primary obstacle hindering the acknowledgment of Afghanistan’s ruling body.
