Italy's Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio, in a strong reaction to the Taliban's caretaker cabinet, said that it was impossible for the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan to be recognized by Italy. Miao said that at least 17 acting ministers of the Taliban were alleged “terrorists” and it was impossible for them to recognise their government, Khaama News reported.
It has been nearly 45 days since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan. The Italian foreign minister said that the Taliban are accused of human rights violations but added that the people of Afghanistan should be provided financial support by the international community. Miao added that the world must get together to prevent an influx of refugees that will destabilise the regional countries and terrorism in the country.
The development comes as the deputy minister of information and culture, and spokesperson of the Taliban, Zabiullah Mujahid, said that the Taliban government will soon be recognised as they were in contact with the UN.
Respect for women and human rights, establishing inclusive government, not allowing Afghanistan to become safe haven of terrorism are the preconditions for the recognition set by the international community.
The Taliban has so far implemented none of these but has been promising to be doing so, the report said.
