Abdul Salam Hanafi, the administrative deputy of the Prime Minister, on Saturday urged the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to invite the representatives of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) to its upcoming summit in Gambia so that they can hear opinions and advice and share the realities in Afghanistan.

Hanafi made this request in a meeting with Tariq Ali Bakheet OIC’s Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian, Cultural, Family and Social Affairs and special envoy for Afghanistan and his accompanying delegation in Kabul.

According to a statement released by Arg, Hanafi said in the meeting that the Islamic Emirate respects OIC and appreciates the advice of the officials of the organization and wants expansion of relations.

He expressed hope that OIC will reflect the problems of Afghanistan and its real image to the world.

While inviting the OIC’s secretary-general to visit Afghanistan, Hanafi said that the pain and suffering of the Islamic world is common and Islamic countries should work together to address these problems.

He added that Afghanistan has transitioned from war to governance, so it needs the cooperation of the OIC in various fields.

Hanafi provided detailed information about the progress made during the rule of the Islamic Emirate in various sectors, including ensuring the right to inheritance and other Sharia and Islamic rights of women.

He emphasized that the Islamic Emirate’s policy is that it will not allow any threat to emerge from Afghanistan, and by focusing on economy-oriented policy, it will not interfere in the affairs of any country, and it expects other countries not to interfere in the internal affairs of Afghanistan.

In the meeting, Noura al-Roshoud, executive director of OIC Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission; Amina al-Hajiri, Director-General of Cultural, Social and Family Affairs; and Afnan Al-Shuaibi, executive director of OIC’s Women Development Organization were also present.

While providing detailed information about their activities, they said that they have seen good progress in Afghanistan, and this is contrary to the negative image that is reflected in the media about Afghanistan, according to the statement.

The delegation announced that OIC will sign contracts with the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) and Azerbaijan’s development agency, placing Afghanistan at the top of aid recipients. The delegation expressed hope that more development work will be carried out in Afghanistan.

The 15th Heads of State and Government Summit of OIC is set to be held in Banjul of Gambia on 4th and 5th of May.
