The Taliban wants to establish good relations with all countries, said the Taliban’s spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid at a press conference on Tuesday.

Speaking about the new government’s foreign policy, the spokesman said that the Taliban wants to establish good relations with all countries, and called on “friendly countries” to take the initiative to contact the Taliban.

Asked about the relationship with China, the spokesman said the Taliban will seek economic ties and friendly relations with China.

Taliban personnel will not enter any foreign embassy buildings and will provide security services for the embassy area, Mujahid said.

According to Reuters Mujahid stressed that no terrorist organizations, including Al-Qaeda, will be allowed to use the territory of Afghanistan to carry out terrorist activities, nor will they be allowed to use the territory to engage in activities that are harmful to neighboring countries.

As for the current situation in Panjshir where resistance fighters there are trying to fend off the Taliban, Mujahid said that the Taliban would resolve the conflict through mediation and dialogue, as the Taliban does not want to see war or violence in any of Afghanistan’s provinces, Reuters reported.

The Taliban hopes that the fighters in Panjshir will lay down their arms, saying it will consider the demands of these fighters, Mujahid added.

Mujahid didn’t give any details about who exactly will form the new government, but said the Taliban is maintaining close contact with all political factions.

Women will be allowed to continue to work in government departments after the resumption of work, according to the spokesman.

According to Mujahid, the Taliban has also been making efforts to get people’s life back to normal.

It has already appointed some acting ministers, and banks and currency exchange counters are expected to reopen on Thursday.

Concrete barricades on the streets are being removed and normal life will gradually return, said Mujahid, adding that the Taliban is addressing problems such as rumors and chaos in some parts of the capital.

Mujahid called on civil servants in the health, medical, transportation, and security sectors to return to their jobs, and promised to guarantee the safety of those who had worked as interpreters for foreign troops, urging them not to leave their country.

It was the group’s second press conference since it took control of Afghanistan’s capital Kabul on August 15.

Bayat Foundation officials said Friday they have sent in a huge consignment of food aid to Maidan Wardak province to help hundreds of needy families.

According to officials, the aid includes flour, rice and oil, which they have started distributing to deserving families in the province.

“In continuation of the Bayat Foundation aid campaign, which sees us distribute aid every winter, today we had a program in Maidan Wardak province to distribute to deserving people. The aid included flour, rice and oil. The aid will be distributed in other provinces also,” said Haji Mohammad Ismail, deputy head of Bayat Foundation.

Recipients of the food parcels welcomed the initiative and called on other charity organizations to help families in need.

“This winter, many people are in need [of aid]; they assisted us, we are grateful. We want them to help us again [in the future],” said one Maidan Wardak recipient.

“Our people are in need. No one has helped them so far. We are grateful to Bayat Foundation that helped us during this difficult time,” said another recipient.

“We are very grateful, because they helped us. We want them to continue their aid so we can survive this difficult situation,” said another resident of Wardak.

Each year, Bayat Foundation carries out a winter campaign, providing needy people with food. This winter, however, the foundation has ramped up efforts to reach as many Afghans as possible across the country amid the ongoing economic crisis.

Already thousands of desperate families have received food parcels from Bayat Foundation in over a dozen provinces in the country.

Food parcels are given to only the most at-risk families who are identified through a comprehensive assessment carried out by the foundation once an area has been earmarked for distribution.

U.S. President Joe Biden on Wednesday firmly defended the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and said he makes no apologies.

“Raise your hand if you think anyone was going to be able to unify Afghanistan under one single government,” he said.

“It’s been the graveyard of empires for a solid reason. It is not susceptible to unity.”
