The Taliban has expanded the cabinet of Afghanistan’s interim government. The names of the deputy ministers were announced on Tuesday. So far, however, the Taliban has not included any women in the cabinet.

The international community has already warned that the Taliban will be brought to justice for their actions. And the recognition of the Taliban-led government will depend on its treatment of women and minorities.

Taliban spokesman Jabiullah Mujahid told a news conference on Tuesday in support of the cabinet expansion that representatives of the minority community had also been included. He said members of the Hazara community have also found a place in the cabinet. In the future, women may also be involved.

Calling for recognition of the Taliban government, Mujahid said, “It is the responsibility of the United Nations and other countries to recognize our government. European, Asian and Islamic countries should maintain diplomatic relations with us.

The Taliban still call their own government an interim government. However, it is not yet clear whether there will be any elections in the country.

The Taliban recently banned girls from sixth to twelfth grade from going to school. Jabiullah Mujahid said in support of the decision that it was a temporary decision. When they will be able to go to school will be announced soon.
