A joint statement of the meeting of the heads of states from Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan) with the Federal Chancellor of Germany, Olaf Scholz, said that the participants stressed the importance of an inclusive and representative government in Afghanistan with the active participation of all ethnic, religious and political groups, and the respect for and protection of basic human rights and fundamental freedoms of all Afghan citizens, and economic recovery to achieve lasting peace in Afghanistan.

The heads of the state reaffirmed their commitment to developing Afghanistan as a safe, peaceful, stable and prosperous country that respects the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all Afghan citizens, in particular women, girls and ethnic groups.

But the Islamic Emirate’s spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, said that rights of all citizens of Afghanistan are observed in the country.

He said that formation of an inclusive government is the internal matter of Afghanistan.

“The cabinet of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is comprised of all tribes and representatives and the rights of all citizens including women have been ensured in the country,” Mujahid said.

This comes as analysts said that the formation of an inclusive government and respect for women’s rights can pave the way to deal with many challenges in the country.

“I hope the Islamic Emirate brings changes in its actions and understands the sensitivity of the issue, so we can solve the crisis within the country,” said Mohammad Omar Nuhzat, head of the Hizb-e-Ama.

“According to Islam, the government should pass responsibility to the person who is committed to Islam and also an expert at his job,” said Bilal Barwar, a political analyst.
Earlier, the participants of the Moscow Format also stressed the formation of an inclusive government in Afghanistan.
