Post via Islamic Emirate September 15th 2019
The Islamic Emirate had a number of issues with the quality and quantity of activities being carried out by the International Committee of the Red Cross in Afghanistan which forced the Islamic Emirate to suspend their activities and scrap the security guarantees which the Islamic Emirate has given to all committed NGOs in Afghanistan.
Following continuous contacts and discussions between officials of the Islamic Emirate and heads of ICRC in the capital of Qatar, Doha, both parties consented to following the old agreement on top of new promises in humanitarian aid leading to the Islamic Emirate granting ICRC permission of resuming their activities.
With publication of this statement, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan restores the former security guarantees to ICRC in Afghanistan and instructs all Mujahideen to pave the way for ICRC activities and be mindful of security to this committee’s workers and equipment.
