Taliban FM meets Shia leaders in Afghanistan

Taliban’s Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi (5thR) meets with members of Afghanistan’s Shia Ulema Council on May 7, 2022.

Taliban’s Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi held a meeting with some influential members of the Shia community in Afghanistan.

The meeting took place at Khatam al-Nabiin School, in the presence of Ayatollah Salehi, chairman of the Shia Ulema Council, Seyyed Mohammad Ali Javid, former minister of transport, Seyyed Hossein Alemi Balkhi, former minister of refugees, and a large number of scholars and influential Shia figures.

The sides held detailed discussions on various issues.

The council had earlier called for formation of an inclusive government to solve the country’s problems.

Since the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan last year, following the US’ withdrawal of Afghanistan, many countries, including Iran, have urged the Taliban to form an inclusive government representing all ethnicities in the country.

Iran says that the establishment of sustainable security and stability in war-torn Afghanistan is possible only through the formation of an inclusive government, which would represent all ethnic groups and religions in the country.

Last year, the Taliban announced a government for Afghanistan, weeks after it took control of the country.

The 33-member cabinet was dominated by members of the Taliban’s old guard.
