Afghanistan's Deputy PM Defies International Pressure, Vows to Develop Mining and Facilitate Immigrant Return

Mawlavi Abdul Kabir, the Political Deputy Prime Minister of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA), declared the government's resistance to international pressure and commitment to developing the mining sector and facilitating the return of immigrants. Kabir made these remarks at the graduation ceremony for 530 students at Kabul Polytechnic University on Monday.

In his speech, Kabir emphasized that the IEA seeks stability in the region and the world and will not succumb to international pressures or allow Afghan soil to be used against other countries. He stated, "The Islamic Emirate is working on implementing projects and developing the mining sector, as well as providing conditions for the return of immigrants to the country."

The Acting Minister of Higher Education, Nada Mohammad Nadim, also addressed the ceremony, asserting that the Islamic Emirate was victorious on the battlefield and will also succeed in the fields of economy, health, and education. Nadim highlighted the need for well-qualified individuals in both modern and religious sciences and the IEA's commitment to enhancing academic capacities in universities.

Why this matters: The statements by Afghanistan's deputy prime minister reflect the IEA's defiance in the face of international pressure and its determination to pursue its own agenda. The commitment to developing the mining sector and facilitating immigrant return could have significant implications for Afghanistan's economy and regional stability.

Mohammad Khalid Hanafi, the minister of Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, emphasized that the IEA is not against the development of modern sciences but claimed that Western countries are spreading negative propaganda against it. The 530 graduates from 17 different fields requested the caretaker government to provide them with job opportunities to serve their nation. Kabir urged the newly graduated students to actively participate in the country's development and contribute their skills to the progress of Afghanistan.
