"students"), alternative spelling Taleban, is an Islamic fundamentalist political movement in Afghanistan. It spread into Afghanistan and formed a government, ruling as the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan from September 1996 until December 2001, with Kandahar as the capital. However, it gained diplomatic recognition from only three states: Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Mohammed Omar has been serving as the spiritual leader of the Taliban since 1994. - Source: Wikipedia
Taliban announced that it would soon form a new government, the CCP’s mouthpiece the Global Times, reported in an op-ed that it would be “impulsive and irrational to decide whether to develop relations with the new regime in Afghanistan” based on these conditions alone.
"The NRF forces are present in all strategic positions across the vale to continue the fight," the group said in a statement on Twitter. "We assure the [people] of Afghanistan that the struggle against the Taliban & their partners will continue until justice & freedom prevail."
