5:35 am
interpretation of his logic law with was that to abdel for her, but he as the spokesman of the taliban minister of foreign affairs, jewels to al jazeera bethel. blanca harder, but yeah, thank you very much indeed. for talking to answers europe, you've recently accused the united states of america flying drones over afghanistan airspace. and you've warned of consequences. how would you describe tele burns relationship with the us? ah, miss miller, her manner to him? oh oh. oh, relationship with the united states. her currently her as her as her, we're trying to see was seeking positive relations with the united states at the sir moment in time. oh, dear violation of our territorial integrity of afghanistan. it is a blatant and
5:36 am
a clear violation, or it is against the commitments that the united states of america made dirt in the doha agreement. the doha agreement clearly stipulates that to the united states and or other countries as well. its allies will not interfere and an internal affairs offer up with i understand they are not only violating their own commitments, but they are also violating international law or by flying drones and aircrafts or in our air space. ah. yet we still seek dialogue. we still seek engagement or, and that has been our policy from the very beginning, her to hold her each other accountable for our actions
5:37 am
and her let this relation develop her, let this relation develop and any problems and any issues that we might have with one another it should be solved or resolved rather through dialogue and not through provocative actions or her that could lead to even creating even further problems. for, for avalon, a stand for the people out of line is time and, and for the security of the, of the world. is there any direct channel of communication between you and the americans, or is it through a 3rd party? no, we have her not only with the united states, we are engaging, we are interacting her with every one with though with the wider international community or with the you with the united states, with our neighboring countries. or we have a direct contacts with them and are we are, are advocating dialogue and engagement. you spent quite some time with the
5:38 am
americans to work out the details of the doha agreement. so you should be knowing each other. and the general feeling was basically that up as after the door, her agreement, the us and the taliban would be able to turn the chapter of decades of mistress mutual mistrust. i don't see that happening anytime now. it has that actually very unfortunate. as you alluded, we held very long in negotiations and dialogue with the united states and both parties made commitments or after very, very detailed discussions. it was not tentative agreement or was a very detailed and very, or a very close to very close interaction. we arrived at to at that agreement. but her again, it's unfortunate that her, when the administration's changed,
5:39 am
the new administration decided not to stick or to the timeline of the agreement or the contents of the agreement and veered off in another direction. or we will also hopeful that, or we would enter a new chapter following the agreement, a chapter that brings peace, prosperity, stability to afghanistan. and it brings us and the world closer together are. but unfortunately again, it is, there it is. the united states that has sir, taken a stance and a merced times that her debt is in opposition to all law international norms by the us itself. president joe biden said that the u. s. is long way off from recognizing the taliban again, the a we want positive relations. we want positive relations. we want engagement, people to people engagement, diplomatic, economic or to tackle common challenges that her are not only affecting us but her,
5:40 am
there it is. the, they're also affecting the united states and the wider international community that are related to our wanston. or the matter of recognition. a sir as the prerogative of the united states of america. but we want and we seek positive relations or with all countries here. but with a lot look a how you do understand that is a huge political diplomatic problem. now, because when you swept through the country across the country in august, the world was grappling with how to deal with the fast moving events in afghanistan . and they were hoping that the taliban, when the took over zeal would be sending some reassuring messages to the well that you are genuine about forming an inclusive government. now when i look at the you government is predominantly hard line bashed tool leaders who were
5:41 am
part of the government in the past. when the taliban was in power enough that he said in 1996 to 2001, you didn't change and you are side lining people in applied, mr. oh, the 1st point her that i want to clarify and make known to every one is there that this new government debt has her taken control. and a plan is done. it is not through military force or we made an agreement that we will not enter through military force. and i stress again that this was not a military takeover. it was the blunder. oh, and the missteps by, by the previous administration there was present in cobble we gave everyone a chance we signed an agreement we we wanted to hold dialogue precisely because we
5:42 am
did not want to see of wanston or in a state where it is left in a vacuum our take over or our coming to power was, was so one of the, the unparalleled in history. it was a phenomenon was her and parallel in history and of a witness where we have, we have been fighting for 20 years with the united states. and the government, their head imposed. we had been fighting them for 20 years. yet when we wanted to hold dialogue and to form an inclusive government with all political parties that were present here, or the other side, decided that they did not want to see a peaceful and stable afghanistan. they wanted to live and in stable than is done with different power brokers. which when you say the other side, you're talking about afghan people or the international community that i'm talking about are all sites that that were opposing yet. there's a problem here,
5:43 am
miss her. belfy, so you met with armed alabama. you met with hammet carzillo. you met with different members of the former government, her clerics, tribal leaders. and the help was basically that you would form a government that includes all the different voices of the afghan society, even those who are opposed to the taliban, that would have sent a positive signal to the international committee. that is not a single woman in this government. sir, believe that is not a single member of the opposition. there is not a single member of a former establishment for many. this is an indication that only one does not want to do business with the other voices of the honest of lamb. people, again, i want to emphasize the fault is not with us, but with the parties that did not want to engage. that is the main problem that is the source of the problem. we committed ourselves to dialogue with the people that
5:44 am
you mentioned. and we sincerely and genuinely are wanted to start negotiations and it was part offered the agreement that we signed as well, or that they scuttle the talks and her tried to delay the process. that is the problem we genuinely wanted to sit and talk. and we committed ourselves to it in the agreement, and we stuck by it all the way till the end. but the events that unfolded her would not driven by us, but it was them. they did not want to engage in dialogue. that was the main problem . mr. bulky, this is to 1021 and you say that you generally willing to
5:45 am
open after the international community. but when you take decisions like imposing restrictions on girls education, you're sending that long message here. ah, what we have to understand here is that there is a lot of sensitivities, customs, restrictions in our own society, her and her, this her issue of women education. we have committed and we have guaranteed all the rights that have been afforded to women in islam. that is the right to education, the right to health care, the right to work. and are they the, the process that the world wants us are the steps they want. want us to take. we are taking them. we have seen progress in them. we had on ours is not happening because girls not girl. our government is whole girls, us are going to schools. we are only work to see making secondary students are yet
5:46 am
to go to school. yes, we are working on mechanism. there are 4 or 4 of bringing them opening up all schools, but it is a gradual progress we appropriate process because we've been talking about these issues. you're very young, by the way. or mr. bulk of madison today is different than afghanistan of 1996 to 2001. when the taliban are 1st came to power, when the taliban leaders meet didn't do the talk about the need to re adjust to the new reality of the need to change the need to implement reforms. do they understand that the young afghan people, boys and girls in missouri said if under har, cobbled by dosher and her are different with different hope, different aspirations and not necessarily some people who are loyal to the taliban? yes sir, it is not her. only us al society that has changed,
5:47 am
but the entire world has progressed as advanced. we understand all the complexities offer off the of the current world. we understand it very well and we are working. but again, i must emphasize that as the saying sit, goes, roam was not built in a day. what we are asking is the for time. or even when her countries that have governance models implemented like the united says, they have an electron system. and even then when one administration changes and the other one comes there have at least a 10 week window of transition. a we have not even been given a month. and the demands that are being imposed on us are things that need time. and we, that's what we are asking for that the process will happen. but gradual. let, let us gradually, i understand but arrive with it. but the taliban has been ambivalent about many
5:48 am
issues, sending very conflicting messages. some of them are very vague and this i would appreciate if you could give me of a straightforward answer when it comes to what kind of understand you would like to see. would you, are you committed to building a vibrant democratic afghanistan where freedoms of thought expression will be protected or where people would be given a chance to say whatever they want to say, even if what they are going to say is totally different to what the taliban embraces as an ideology again, this sir concept has been misunderstood and this concept of freedom of expression has been misunderstood. it is not related to a democratic order. islam itself allows freedom of expression and are we? i have to clarify a one point. after 40 years of conflict of death of destruction, this country has seen the chaos that was prevalent or the system of governance that
5:49 am
has taken hold. it is the 1st time in nearly 40 years. that all opposition, whether in the government or outside the government, every individual has the right to express his opinion. you sitting here and interview me the media that is present, the vibrant media that you yourself are witnessing that is present in cobble and across of einstein is also a testament of our commitment to freedom of expression to freedom of speech. or this our priority at this moment, or is that stabilizing this country. we have been at war and conflict for 40 years . and i have to emphasize this point again and again, 40 years is a very, very, very long time for a country to be mired. and constant and constant conflict and war. but i have to say that journalists afghan jenna's up very much concert. they say that you are
5:50 am
imposing restrictions on them and that they are telling them we have to follow the agenda of the taliban. you've been very critical of the former government, but at least that in, during the last 20 years there was a constitution which was adopted in 2004. there was a parliament and there were political parties trying to vie for a bigger say. it was the biggest concern is that when, if you to more of this i to talk to the europeans, they will tell you we need to see political parties contesting lashes. we would like to see women given biggest, say the government and you're not given the world an indication that you are willing to implement those political reforms. coming to your 1st point about restrictions on our local media. that to the fears are irrational. they are unfounded. no one has ordered or instructed any journalist to take a certain stances to follow certain policy. i'll freedom of expression that they
5:51 am
have the freedom offer, expressing their voices that has to be within the bounds of islam. it must not transgress against the honor and dignity of individuals. it must not, it must not violate and rouse emotions, islamic emotions, or religious or emotion sin. it must serve the expressions, the freedom of exhaustion that to have the advantage. it must not across certain bounds or that is the only restrictions when you talk about those boundaries of all the muslim countries. the taliban are internationally known for their strict interpretation of islamic laws, where you got countries in the muslim world, they have very relaxed codes. are you still stuck in the mindset of 219962001 where you are weld view was different than the rest of the world. or are you? are we likely to see some changes here?
5:52 am
again, i have to say that to each country and each country has its own laws and regulations are for running or the governance structure of running the government are for giving her liberties to the people. we are committed and we guarantee every single right that islam has given to the people of afghanistan. we will give it to them. but we do not want interference in our internal affairs. i see a bite. let's go to read us just just as we do not interfere and do not demand certain things from, from the or from others. we would also like the same ok treatment. let's go to regional politics. i would like to start with your neighbor tajikistan president, him or anybody. raman has accused the taliban of human rights abuses in punchier and said there's absolutely no way tajikistan will recognize your government. are
5:53 am
you in touch with them? the reports. i have not seen any of the human rights violations because we have sent media to the puncher rally. there have not been any human rights violations committed in pension. we are in talks her with her with tajikistan and her again. we want good relations. we want positive relations with, with all our countries that are our neighboring countries, our regional countries, the international will. we want engagement, we won dialogue, and that is our policy. and we'll continue to be our policy to, to iron out any differences or any obstacles or any concerns they have through dialogue and engagement. do you see iran as a potential ally of, of gone is that we see all our all neighboring countries. her with tajikistan was focused on iran, pakistan. all these countries are we want good relations with them. we want
5:54 am
positive relations. we are neighbors. we have rights on one another, but you know, you're the spokesman or the minister of foreign affairs. you know that the iranians are pretty much concerned about you side lining the she has all in a plan is that you're not giving them a bigger say, no, we have not side lender. she her has our community. her, as you might have also read reports that there has had been no fighting and the has outage at regions of afghanistan or the hand over off security of governance toward nerd, the islamic emerett or was through peaceful means through understanding. and oh, we have even included a has ada i. she has ada as a minister and in a, in our cabinet. if you feel together recognition from the americans and the europeans. do you think that china and russia could be the potential partners up on the taliban? will be ready to do business with again,
5:55 am
her and i want to emphasize this point over and over. we seek engagement. we seek engagement with the united states, with the e, you, with russia, with china. we do not want a line as time to be up play ground of competition. we wanted to be an economic corridor and a space of co operation between all world countries. or we do not want a supposed great game being played out on our poor people. and against apple available or so again we, we want engagement and positive relations with every single country around the world. one of the sticking points here is, are these like state of hot sandwiches, an affiliate of our iso and al qaeda. the americans made it clear, and the europeans, the russians himself, the chinese. you realize also that they don't want,
5:56 am
they don't want to see those girls operating in your country using your country as a platform to launch attacks. i guess the europeans of the americans, are you determined to clump down or allied and i ski her eyes. this phenomenon that term took root in afghanistan was during the time of the united states of america when it had occupied our land. we have or fought against isis, our people, the people of afghanistan do not accept the ideology, the extremist interpretation of islam, of fur, isis, or any such groups. and we have made commitments. and we have are proven through our actions, proven through our actions from our inception as the taliban movement to the estimate, emerett or in the ninety's. and through the stage of our,
5:57 am
for fighting for our freedom against an occupation that we will not allow any one to threaten the security of any other country you from the soil of atlanta that we have made that commitment in the doha agreement as well. mister butler, you understand that winning war is one thing. building a country is something else. now, when you look at the future of, of lancaster, what kind of country do have a might like, let's say in 510 years from now. we envision and afghanistan, that is a, is an, it is a country that serves as an economic corridor for, for between the east and the west. a space of engagement, a country of prosperity or
5:58 am
a country that is at peace with itself. and the world that is our vision for a, for a future other than is that where we are an open society, a diverse society, we're where people have freedom of movement, freedom of expression, and are all the other rights that islam has given to every single individual i thought he spoke to them in a sale point enough as of a lot of stuff. thank you very much for your time. ah ah, how many nukes has too many new america has in many ways driven the arms race for parties are much more like the british parties down to the there are fewer regulations to own a tiger than there are its own a dog. how can this be happening, your weekly take on us politics and society, and that's the bottom line. examining the impact of today's headlines,
5:59 am
let's move to cobit 19, terrible demonstration of the failure of human soliz at it. setting the agenda, tomorrow's discussions, what i think, what i saw, what our weakness and pre, and nobody sees it in their own country. international filmmakers of world class journalists. let's take a deep dive into geez, common prosperity bring programs to inform and inspire youth rec nickel solutions that can make a difference. now on al jazeera, the venezuela, columbia borgia has become a stamping ground for trespasses as desperate people transgress an illegal passage to feed an emerging field trafficking markets. we follow that perilous journey unguarded, through the line of fire. risking at all and his wayland columbia. on al jazeera o l g 0,
6:00 am
a blue disillusion voters, as polls closed in iraq, signs that turn out and the parliamentary elections could be one of the lowest on record. ah, well darn jordan, this is al jazeera la you from dough are also coming up. the taliban says it's agreed to allow us to send a draft canister after a successful meeting and cattle. ah, a coach in poland, challenges the country's d u membership, but many.
