“I hope Italy recognizes our Islamic government and reopens its embassy soon.” Taliban spokesman said in an interview with Repubblica, Zabiullah Mujahid, who explains that in the new Afghanistan “there will be no women ministers, but they will be able to work in ministries or as police officers or nurses. They will also be able to study at the university”. To counter the economic crisis, however, the Taliban are focusing on China: “Beijing will help us rebuild the country, it will be our main partner”.
“All the money has been spent on the war, now it’s time to rebuild. For this we need to improve our international relations and get accredited in front of governments around the world. We are aware that we have an enormous job ahead of us, but we are setting the foundations for a profound transformation of the country “, says Mujahid.
“China is our main partner and represents a fundamental and extraordinary opportunity for us as it is willing to invest and rebuild our country”, says the spokesman for the Taliban. As for relations with Russia, Mujahid assures us that “we continue to maintain excellent relations with an important partner with a fundamental weight for the region such as Russia. Relations with Moscow are mainly political and economic. Russia continues to mediate for us and with us to create the conditions for an international peace “.
