In the near future, the United States does not plan to recognize the radical Taliban movement (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation) as the official authorities of Afghanistan. This was announced on Monday, September 6, by the American President Joe Biden.
“No. Before that (the recognition of the militants’ power at the official level – Ed.) Is still very far away, “- quotes the answer of the US leader to the relevant question. TASS…
Earlier the same day, September 6, a representative of the radical movement Zabihullah Mujahid said that Panjshir had come under the control of militants. Some of the militias were defeated in the fighting, while others fled the region, he said. In addition, he stressed that the military actions in Afghanistan can be considered completed after the movement has established full control over the entire territory of the country.
The official representative of the radical movement Ahmadullah Muttaki announced the end of the formation of the composition of the new authorities in Afghanistan. He added that the list of government officials will be announced shortly.
It also became known that representatives of the movement sent an invitation to Turkey, China, Russia, Iran, Pakistan and Qatar to an event on the occasion of the announcement of the composition of the government of Afghanistan.
However, despite the statements of the militants about full control over the Afghan provinces, the source reported the continuation of the fighting in Panjshir. In addition, the majority of the region’s inhabitants moved into the mountains in an unsafe environment.
The situation in Afghanistan escalated in May 2021 after the start of the withdrawal of American troops who had been in the country since 2001. Representatives of the movement launched an offensive on the country’s major cities and entered Kabul on August 15, announcing the end of the war.
