Afghanistan New Government: The Taliban has canceled the program of the swearing-in ceremony of its interim government. According to media reports, the Taliban has taken this decision to stop the wastage of money. By the way, there is no doubt that there is a huge shortage of cash in Afghanistan at this time. Most of the banks do not have cash and the bank accounts of the government have also been frozen. By the way, the news is also that the Taliban has taken this decision under pressure from their allies.
According to the information received so far, the Taliban had planned to hold the swearing-in ceremony on the same day as September 11. On this day in 2001, the biggest terrorist attack on America took place (9/11 Attack). The Taliban had invited China, Turkey, Pakistan, Iran, Qatar and Russia to attend the ceremony. Last week, a member of the Russian parliament said the ceremony would be attended by ambassador-level officials from Russia. But on Friday, Russia refused to take part in the swearing-in ceremony of the Taliban government.
The Kremlin said Friday Russia would not take part in any way in the Taliban govt’s inauguration ceremony in Afghanistan.

By the way, other reasons are being given for the cancellation of this ceremony. Like many other countries including Iran are not happy with the new Taliban government. Many countries, including the US, feel that the new Taliban government consists mostly of elected pawns from Pakistan. At the same time, the ceremony has been canceled at a time when there are reports of fighting between the Taliban and the Haqqani network. Various factions of the Taliban are also not happy with this new cabinet. In such a situation, the Taliban does not want to be beaten for their swearing-in ceremony. However, Inamullah Samgani, a member of the Culture Commission of Afghanistan, tweeted that the oath ceremony of the Afghan government was canceled a few days ago. But it is believed that due to the interference of Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI Chief Faiz Hameed, internal discord in Afghanistan has increased.
