Qalandar Ebad, the Taliban’s acting Minister of Public Health, will visit the United Kingdom and is expected to discuss humanitarian difficulties as well as other important topics, according to Khaama Press, which cited sources on Monday.
This is the first visit to London by a Taliban delegation since they took control of Afghanistan in mid-August of last year.
Ebad’s visit comes a day after the Taliban’s acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Motaqi departed Kabul for Doha, where he is expected to meet with European diplomats located in Doha, according to Khaama Press.
The tours and contacts with worldwide groups occur at a time when no country has recognised the Taliban’s temporary administration.
Despite the fact that the Taliban reclaimed control in Afghanistan about six months ago, they have yet to be recognised by any country.
Taliban, who are anxious for world recognition, have been reminded time and again that respect for women and human rights, building inclusive administration, and not letting Afghanistan to become a safe haven for terrorists are the preconditions for international recognition.
