Mawlavi Abdul Kabir, Taliban’s Acting Prime Minister met with UNAMA Chief, Roza Otunbayeva in Kabul and said that more than 550 former government military and civilian officials have returned to Afghanistan.  

Official sources have not confirmed the report and claim that hundreds of former government military personnel have been persecuted and killed by the Taliban group.

While meeting with the head of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Afghanistan (UNAMA), PM Kabir said, since the return of the Taliban to power “islands of power, corruption, war and insecurity” have ended in Afghanistan.

This comes as at least 13 people including some key Taliban members were killed and more than 30 others were injured in the latest terror attack in northeastern Badakhshan province on Friday.

During the meeting, Mawlavi Kabir asked the international community to remove the senior Taliban members’ names from the “black list”, and said Taliban administration wants to maintain active diplomacy and good relation with the international community.

Mawlavi Kabir stated that international organizations and aid groups could resume their operation in Afghanistan – adding the international community could complete the unfinished projects in Afghanistan.

Considering the dire economic situation in Afghanistan multi-folded with drought and poverty, Afghan people are in urgent need of further international aid.

Meanwhile, the Taliban regime’s reluctance to positively respond to the demands and concerns of the international community, especially in the areas of education and women’s right to work, has caused donors to drastically reduce the amount of aid to Afghanistan, which further isolates the war-torn country.
