The meeting took place on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.
A spokesperson of the IEA Inamullah Samangani in a Twitter post cited Mulaee Kabir as he said that they have completed the criteria for recognition.
As per Inamulllah Samangani, “IEA has completed all the criteria for recognition and we hope that Norway will take the lead in recognizing them and will also do its part in releasing Afghanistan’s assets.” Said the Deputy PM.
