The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan denies reports regarding the appointment of its envoy to run Afghanistan’s diplomatic mission in Pakistan.

Zabiullah Mujahid, deputy minister of information and culture, said that there has been no agreement so far to reopen the Afghan embassy in Pakistan. 

“Such a thing has not been officially approved,” he said.  

However, Reuters recently reported that representatives of the Islamic Emirate had been sent to Pakistan to run the Afghan embassy and consulate. According to Reuters, Sardar Ahmad Khan Shekib has been appointed as the first secretary or charge d’affaires at the Afghanistan embassy in Islamabad. 

No country including Pakistan has officially recognized the Islamic Emirate. 

“Not only Pakistan but also other countries will soon form relations with the foreign ministry of Afghanistan, and the fact that the regional countries have not closed their embassies in Afghanistan is a sign of tacit recognition,” said Abdul Satar Saadat, a political analyst. 

In recent months, before the collapse of the former government, relations between the former Afghan government and Pakistan soured over allegations that the daughter of Afghanistan’s previous ambassador to Pakistan was abducted in Islamabad. 

“The issue of recognition rises at the time when international community is assured that the promises and commitments made by the Taliban will be fulfilled,” said Wesley Nebenzia, Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations. 

Earlier, the Islamic Emirate nominated Suhail Shaheen as its ambassador to the United Nations in a general summit in New York. But he has yet to take the seat because the UN has not accepted his nomination.
