Tajikistan says inclusive gov't in Afghanistan 'necessary'

Tajikistan’s president met on Wednesday with the Pakistani foreign minister in the capital Dushanbe and exchanged views on a range of issues including Afghanistan, the presidency said in a statement.

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi is on a four-nation – Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Iran – tour to share Islamabad's perspective on the latest developments in Afghanistan.

Emomali Rahmon said Afghanistan, where the Taliban have taken power, is on the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe following the withdrawal of coalition forces.

He said the complex and dangerous situation in the war-torn country, is a regional and global problem, and not just for the Afghans.

"It is clearly evident that Taliban are breaking their previous promises to form an interim government with the broad participation of other political forces in the country and are preparing to establish an Islamic Emirate," the statement read. "Tajikistan strongly condemns all forms of lawlessness, murder, looting, and persecution of the Afghan people, especially Tajiks, Uzbeks, and other national minorities."
