he Taliban have decided to altogether cancel the swearing-in ceremony for their new interim government in Afghanistan in order to avoid ‘wasting resources and money’.

Russia’s TASS news agency reported on Friday that the ceremony was being cancelled as a result of pressure from allies.

Reports stated that the US and its Nato allies were pressurising the Qatari government to advise the Taliban against holding an inauguration celebration altogether, as it would come off as “inhuman”. The event could further jeopardise the Taliban’s prospects of global recognition for their fledgling regime in Afghanistan, something that the hard-line group is keen on securing.

On Friday, the Kremlin stated that Russia would not take part in any way in the new Taliban government’s inauguration ceremony. Earlier, an official had said that Russia would be represented by ambassador-level officials.

On the cancellation, Inamullah Samangani said on Twitter, “The inauguration ceremony of the new Afghan government was cancelled a few days ago. In order not to confuse people further, the leadership of the Islamic Emirate announced the part of the Cabinet, and it has already started to work.”

He is a member of the Afghan government’s cultural commission.The Taliban on Tuesday announced an interim government in Afghanistan, including key ministerial figures. Despite their assurances of an inclusive government, the new cabinet is all-male and will govern as per the Taliban’s harsh interpretation of Sharia Law.
