Taliban Close To Forming New Government In Afghanistan

The Taliban were expected to form a government as early as Friday with the new regime under intense international scrutiny.

The world has scrutinized the nation for its vow to rule Afghanistan with greater tolerance, especially on women’s rights.

They could announce a new administration after Friday afternoon prayers according to two Taliban sources. This will happen as the Islamists shift gears from just an insurgent group to governing power.

The development comes just days after the United States fully withdrew its troops from and ended two decades of war.

Meanwhile, the US has decided to adopt a wait-and-see approach to the Taliban, although there were signs of engagement with the new leaders gathering pace.

The United Nations also said they have restored humanitarian flights to the country. The country’s capital Islamabad connected with Mazar-i-Sharif in Northern Afghanistan and Kandahar in the south.

Western Union and Moneygram also said they will resume operations to transfer money in and out of the country.

Very many Afghans rely on relatives abroad to survive, and Qatar said it is working to reopen the Kabul Airport.

In the coming days, the British and Italian foreign ministers will be heading to Afghanistan’s neighbors. The lot will hold discussions on the plight of refugees still hoping to escape the Taliban.

The new rules have pledged to be more accommodating than during their first stint in 1996-2001, which also came after years of conflict.

Now, all eyes are on whether the Taliban can produce a cabinet capable of managing a war-wrecked economy or not.
