The Taliban can swear allegiance to their government today, the 9/11 anniversary. This will be a major challenge for the United States as protests against President Biden ‘s participation in the funerals continue.
Kabul / New York. The interim government, formed by the Taliban a few days ago, could officially take office today, marking the 20th anniversary of 9/11, according to Russian media reports, citing official sources. Recently, the Taliban did not report any information about this. However, an oath on the anniversary of 9/11 is a bad sign that it will get worse, especially in the United States.
However, the Kremlin denied reports by the Russian upper house that Russia would be represented by its ambassador to Kabul. One was told Friday that he would not attend. In addition, Russian troops in Tajikistan, a northern neighbor of Afghanistan, have been fortified, including 30 tanks.
The 33-member interim government under Mulla Hassan Akun is making a big splash abroad. All the ministers are Taliban, some are wanted in the necessary letters with high offerings. Interior Minister Sirajuddin Haqqani, for example, leads the Haqqani network linked to al-Qaeda, in which the United States has invested tens of millions of dollars. There are no women in government and only a handful of ministers belong to the Pashtun people.
