A recommendation by AISSC on benefits of getting the Government of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan recognized by the international community:
In accordance with the Charter of the United Nations, the recognition of a Government of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is an act that generally implies readiness to assume diplomatic relations. The United Nations as an organization of independent States, it may admit a new State to its membership or accept the credentials of the representatives of a new Government. This move by the UN will provide a much needed legitimacy to the current government.
As being UN member state Afghanistan reserves full right to invoke the UN charter and international community for recognizing its Islamic Government which not only makes the future diplomatic engagements fruitful but also provides the more clearer access to lay down road map for global peace and stability. By encouraging its members and facilitating the process to accept the credentials of the new Government in Afghanistan may delivers the far greater benefits than being ignorant to the real political turnaround.
Recognition is also distinct from the establishment of diplomatic relations, though the two are often conflated. “Diplomatic relations” is another term of art that specifically refers to the traditional exchange of ambassadors, diplomatic personnel, and related facilities between states, all of which are guaranteed certain legal privileges and immunities under international law. State recognition is a necessary precondition for diplomatic relations, as these legal protections require a shared ability to enter into international legal obligations to be effective.
In part, this reflects the fact that the Taliban has genuine reason to seek international recognition, beyond simply the legitimacy it provides. For months, Taliban leaders based in Doha have engaged in a careful messaging campaign intended to assuage the international community’s concerns around issues like human rights and the treatment of women. While events on the ground do not always live up to this rhetoric, the fact that Taliban leaders are making the effort suggests that they have an understanding of what engagement with the broader international community will require and are willing to make at least some effort in that direction.
In short, the current Taliban leadership seems to recognize that formal recognition by the broader international community promises real advantages and may be willing to secure it.
