Between China’s courtship and America’s intransigence… Will the Taliban emerge from its international isolation?

Several months after they took control of Kabul, the question of international recognition still faces the Afghan Taliban. Whether or not the international community recognizes the Islamist movement as a legitimate government will make a big difference in terms of foreign investment, expertise, and aid.

And the first time she was Taleban In power, only three countries recognized its rule: Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. This time, if the Taliban wants to gain recognition from the international community, they will have to win the trust of the world, while foreign countries must also act according to the reality on the ground and deal with the Taliban for the sake of Afghanistan’s stability.

Currently, the European Union and the United Kingdom, major aid donors, are reluctant to engage with the Taliban, although at the same time they acknowledge that there are few alternatives to doing so.

Essentially, the Western bloc has two main concerns: they want guarantees from the Taliban that the movement will respect basic rights, including the rights of women, and that the new rulers will not allow Afghanistan to become a hotbed of international “jihadist” movements.

For their part, Western countries – who are particularly interested in Afghan stability because they do not want a new wave of migrants heading to their shores – should treat the Taliban as well as possible, because isolating the group could push the country toward chaos.

With regard to China, it has dealt with the Taliban leadership openly. Even as the Taliban were fighting the Ashraf Ghani government and the Afghan National Army on the ground, China released a photo and statement of Wang Yi meeting with Taliban political leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar. Barader was at the head of an entire delegation that included the heads of the religious council and the Taliban’s propaganda committee, in Tangin, China.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry also stated after the meeting that “Afghanistan belongs to the Afghan people and its future should be in the hands of its people”, indicating that the previous government was not an Afghan government, but was an agent of the United States, and therefore it is not legitimate.

China was one of the few countries that kept opening its embassy in Kabul when all other countries were evacuating.

The Russian embassy is also open in Kabul and the Russians are dealing with the Taliban. The Russian envoy met in Kabul with the Taliban after the fall of the capital and described the meeting as “friendly”, but the deputy head of the Russian mission in India Roman Babushkin, in a conversation about working with and recognizing the Taliban, said that if the Taliban must be recognized at all, the “step The first must be a relevant consensus in the United Nations” and the reference here to the UN Credentials Committee.

The Credentials Committee is appointed at the beginning of each regular session of the General Assembly. The Committee is tasked with examining the credentials of representatives of Member States and reporting to the Assembly, but this is only a step to buy time, and there is nothing to prevent a country from recognizing or not recognizing another State or Government bilaterally, even if the United Nations does not approve the papers Accreditation.

Meanwhile, the United States also raised the issue of recognizing it after legitimizing the Taliban. In an interview with CNN, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said: “A future Afghan government that upholds the basic rights of its people and does not harbor terrorists is a government that we can work with and recognize.”

Therefore, when the Indian ambassador in Qatar, Deepak Mittal, met with Taliban political leader Sher Muhammad Abbas Stanikzai, the government immediately published the details of the meeting, but sources said that India should not be seen as considering recognizing the Taliban regime yet.

Diplomats and political leaders from various countries continue to use a similar phrase: “We will follow the Taliban’s actions, not the allegations.”

Most believe that the Taliban is seeking greater international acceptance and eventual recognition from more countries this time around. But almost all countries are in a wait and watch mode.

In light of this, the Taliban still has to offer what countries seek to recognize, if they are not rich from them, and not bothered by any international isolation.
