Afghanistan’s Foreign Ministry has issued a press release regarding the US State Department imposing visa restrictions on some leaders of the Islamic Emirate.
“IEA Ministry of Foreign Affairs considers the recent statement by the US State Department imposing visa restrictions on some leaders of the Islamic Emirate as an obstacle to the development of ties between the two sides,” the Ministry said.
The Ministry went on to say: “IEA as a responsible government, is committed to all rights of its people which are necessitated by the holy religion of Islam, accepted Afghan traditions and demands of time. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reminds the United States that despite the financial and banking sanctions, the Afghan government strives to provide its people with a prosperous life.”
The Ministry noted that “the continuation of illegitimate sanctions on the financial and banking system of Afghanistan is a flagrant violation of the human rights of Afghans, restricting access of Afghans to many spheres of a prosperous life, including education and health.”
The Ministry called on the United States of America to remain committed to the Doha Agreement and through implementation, demonstrate that legal documents and agreements signed with the US are trustworthy.
“The Afghan government stands ready to discuss all outstanding issues with the US,” the Ministry emphasized.
The Ministry also condemned the decision of the United States and underscored that the disputes should be resolved through diplomatic channels and positive steps.
“Our bilateral interactions have proven that pressure is not helpful in resolving issues,” it added. (ILKHA)
